Students in the Plan A track are required to learn at least two foreign languages and take 12 units in a related discipline. This track is ideal for students who are interested in engaging in interdisciplinary research and want to combine their knowledge in linguistics with a related discipline such as anthropology, education, literature, sociology, mathematics, etc.
Because of their interdisciplinary training, many of our alumni who graduated from the Plan A track have successfully taken up further studies in law, international studies, medicine, and education, among others.
In general, our BA program aims for its students to develop a wide array of skills that are applicable to many jobs. Aside from developing students’ skills for linguistic analysis, students also have the opportunity to practice and develop their problem-solving skills, critical thinking skills, interpersonal communication skills, creativity, as well as their sociocultural awareness. Many of the graduates of our undergraduate program are therefore engaged in a wide variety of fields such as language education, teaching in higher education, research and data analysis, publishing, media and advertising, marketing, foreign service, and human resource management.
