Date: Mon, 25 Sep 1995 08:19:16 -0400 From: Wayne Glowka Subject: Re: Gen Ed Linguistics I posted the question last spring and got a few replies. There was nothing particularly consistent about how institutions use linguistics in the general education requirements. In the Univ. System of GA, we can use linguistics in Area IV of the core--the miscellaneous section in which courses are chosen by individual departments. The assistant dean at UGA explained that no one has ever tried to make linguistics count as a social science because the course is taught by members of the English department. So, counting as practically nothing, my new class this fall was allowed to make with a dozen students.
