SUMMARY

Choosing to study Linguistics is not only a valuable choice, but ordinarily a needed first step for students aspiring to enter a career as a proofreader, an accents coach, or a lexicographer. In fact, linguistics is an uncommon degree ranking as the 140th most popular degree. In the last year, there were 2,372 linguistics diplomas received. In-state tuition for linguistics at private schools is, on average, 4.6 times more costly than their public rivals.

There are 148 schools which offer linguistics. 148 colleges is fairly average in terms of the number of institutions which offer each degree. If you're hoping to surround yourself with other linguistics students, consider colleges in California which have more students admitted to linguistics than any other state. More generally, the top region to study linguistics is in the Far West region with University of California-Berkeley, University of California-Los Angeles, and University of California-Santa Barbara best representing the region. Interestingly, our selection for the best conference to study linguistics is the Pacific-12 Conference with University of California-Berkeley, University of California-Los Angeles, and University of Washington-Seattle Campus representing the conference. On that topic, our belief is that the best university for linguistics is Stanford University, and here you can find our comprehensive list for the best colleges.

The overall 'best' school might not actually be the 'best' school for every student. There can be tons more factors to think about when selecting school. External stuff like campus amenities, transportation services, and food would definitely alter your inclinations on where to go to university. At Authority, we have examined the pros and cons for you. If, for example, you want to know which linguistics university is home to the top campus, the answer is Harvard University. If, for example, you are very interested in which school has the top campus, we have a whole page dedicated to that. We have carefully pored through professor reviews, student reviews, government databases, and more so we can compare every major in the United States in an unbiased and informative way. You can explore our comprehensive list for the colleges with the best student life here and, from that list, our choice of the school with the best student life for linguistics is Cornell University. Are you curious why? Continue reading to learn more about our top selections. Some of our picks might shock you.

If expense is a major factor in your decision on where to go to university, you might be cautious about Reed College. Reed College appears to be the most expensive university for linguistics, at least for out of state attendance. That being said, we have a list of the most expensive colleges that could put the cost of Reed College into perspective. You could also be interested to know that linguistics is the 49th most expensive program in the United States, with an average cost of $49,200. On a broader scale, the most expensive state for linguistics in the nation is Rhode Island demonstrated by a tuition of $57,112 at the main school in the state Brown University. To zoom out even further, the most expensive region for linguistics is the New England region which is best demonstrated with Boston College with a cost of $56,780, Dartmouth College with a cost of $55,605, and Brown University with a cost of $57,112.

Our cheapest region for linguistics is the Rocky Mountains region which is represented by Metropolitan State University of Denver with a cost of $20,009, Brigham Young University-Provo with a cost of $5,790, and University of Utah with a cost of $26,017. In better news, the most affordable university for linguistics is Brigham Young University-Provo. Authority.org's full list of the most affordable colleges can be found here.

In-state learners can expect to pay in the neighborhood of $11,400 for a degree in linguistics. That cost grows by a lot to a median of $29,200 for the out-of-state public-school undergrad. As such, you might be interested in our selection for the college with the best value for linguistics: Stanford University. Here you will see our comprehensive list for the universities we see as being the best value in general. That being said, this idea is predicated on out-of-state tuition costs. A discussion of value changes when it comes to in-state tuition, but we do not know in which states any one student has residency.

Earnings for linguistics students differ a lot, but two years after completing the major students will regularly earn around $46,000. While there is much variation in salary; top positions can make up to $74,000. Straight out of school, the lowest earning opportunities within the linguistics field make $28,900, which could be worse. The top earning graduates from linguistics studied at Stanford University and if you are looking for universities with all of the highest earning graduates, we have that too.

The prevailing diversity of linguistics sits near the top, coming in the 87th percentile of majors nationally. The college with the most composite diversity for linguistics is Swarthmore College and here you can find our comprehensive list of the schools which have the most diversity. The financial diversity of Linguistics is only within the 64th percentile of all majors. Racial diversity is actually above financial diversity, ranking in the 85th percentile. White students compose the largest proportion, 50%, of those majoring in linguistics. Additionally, 68% of undergrads seeking a linguistics degree are women.

The median score for linguistics professors is 4 stars, a score which is exactly the average score across all majors; which is a fine. If you want to find the most popular linguistics professor in the nation, take a look at Daniel Seely from Eastern Michigan University. It may be surprising, but the top rated linguistics instructors by student are at CUNY Queens College. If we incorporate data other than simply rankings we find that the college with the best instructors for linguistics is Stanford University. You will find an explanation of our evolving ranking methodology of the best overall professors here, as well as some of the finest professors in the U.S.

Finally, the hardest university to get into for linguistics is Stanford University. While we are unsure why you would be interested, we have a comprehensive page of the hardest colleges to get into. With that said, we hope you understand that approaching the higher education world with a perspective primarily built on superlatives could cause issues. We at Authority hope you explore our other pages on individual schools and read a few of our informative background 'blog posts' on essential details to think about as your college search develops.
