Linguistics is the scientific study of human language, from semantics to psychology and sociology. Linguistics courses are offered at universities and academic institutions around the world. Prospective students looking to enroll in Linguistics courses may be working professionals, full time students, or people interested in a career change. Credentials and qualifications earned in a course in Linguistics can apply to a number of career paths and professional positions, from writers to teachers, businesspeople to consultants and many more.
