B.A. in Linguistics at Ben-Gurion University

How do you communicate?

Language is such a fundamental part of everyday life that most people simply take it for granted without ever thinking about it. However, other people are fascinated by the way kids and adults acquire new languages, the way the meaning of words change over time, the reasons that people who speak the same languages pronounce the words differently and the way the brain works every time human beings speak. These people are called linguistics. If you wish to find out more about this essential part of our world you should consider studying linguistics.

The Linguistics Program at BGU

Ben-Gurion University of the Negev offers a B.A. track in linguistics, taught entirely in English. However, the focus of the studies is not the English language, but any language. Students of BGU study courses in phonemes, language acquisition, semantics and behavioral sciences in order to get a full picture of the way the mind works. The learning process is assisted by computer labs and groundbreaking research technologies.
