The Hispanic Linguistics subplan provides training in Spanish Phonetics and Phonology, Morphosyntax, Sociolinguistics, Applied Linguistics, and Bilingualism. In these classes, students explore how language is formulated and organized in our brains, what Spanish structures are possible and why, and how sounds are organized, produced and perceived. Some of our classes also explore language production as social behavior, taking into account speakers' intentions, the role of the interlocutor, Spanish variation and change over time, and the impact of language ideologies and attitudes on our societies. These approaches are applied to our understanding about how Spanish is acquired and taught in our classes that focus on pedagogical issues that arise in the field of teaching of Spanish as a second language and as a heritage language. A BA in Spanish with the emphasis in Hispanic Linguistics Prepares the student for Language Teaching, Health Care Professions, Translation and Interpretation, Speech and Hearing Sciences, International Relations, and Graduate Studies in several areas , including Computer Sciences, Bilingual Education, and several subfields in Linguistics.
