The Department of Hispanic Studies houses an Allied Field in Hispanic Linguistics. This Allied Field or secondary area of specialization offers concentrations in Second Language Acquisition, Sociolinguistics, and Comparative-Historical Linguistics anchored by the expertise of Drs. Alan V. Brown (Second Language Acquisition), Yanira Paz (Sociolinguistics), and Haralambos Symeonidis (Hispanic Linguistics).
Each concentration has an articulated program of study, with courses that enrich the linguistics offerings available.
