What to expect from Linguistics courses in Spring 2021

The Department of Linguistics has been working hard since the beginning of the pandemic to reinvent its curriculum in a form that offers students an engaging learning experience while respecting the challenges and constraints of the COVID-19 era. Our courses this spring will employ a variety of approaches and technologies to ensure that students receive the engagement and support they need in order to succeed.

Currently, most courses in the department are being offered fully online. As always, we have an online, asynchronous section of LIN 200 (section 201) and LIN 211 (section 201), both offered as part-of-term courses (LIN 211 is offered in the first eight-week session; LIN 200 is offered in the second eight-week session). There are also in person versions of these classes, which may include some hybrid elements, as appropriate; LIN 211-001 is a full semester course, and LIN 200-001 is offered in the second eight-week session.

If you have questions or concerns about the modalities of the classes in which you are enrolled, you should contact the instructor directly. Further questions or concerns can be directed via email to the Department Chair, Jennifer Cramer (jennifer.cramer@uky.edu).

It is our hope that students will feel comfortable reaching out to their instructors in this difficult time. The Department of Linguistics strives to support our students, and we will do what we can to help each of you succeed.
