I'm a prospective linguistics major and I know the linguistics department at Carleton is very small; when I visited last spring I sat in on a class and talked with one of the linguistics professors and she seemed very nice and knowledgeable. Because of the size of the program, however, and the fact that it's technically a "special major" and not an official one, I was just wondering if anyone knew anything about the linguistics program. Is it decent or does it end up falling in the shadow of Carleton's extremely strong sciences? Does it feel limiting to be in such a small program? And would it be a disadvantage if I was looking at grad schools later on?
