Linguistics has been offered at Queen’s since late 1970. In 2009, it joined the Department of German, being housed previously with French Studies. Since the amalgamation in 2011, Linguistics is part of the Department of Languages, Literatures and Cultures. The program consists of two permanent faculty members as well as a wonderful team of talented adjunct faculty. This relatively small program is extremely vibrant and offers superb training to award-winning students, many of whom are recruited by the best graduate programs in North America.
