Combine your BA degree in Linguistics with a BA in Statistics - and get the best of both worlds
The field of information and data analysis has become central to businesses, industry, and public organization, as well as in academic research – leading to a growing interest in linguistic applications and in the ability to analyze linguistic data systematically, based on statistical and computational knowledge.
Combining a BA in Linguistics with a BA in Statistics will provide you with state-of-the-art tools in both fields. You will acquire advanced skills for solving challenges in machine translation, database searches, text analysis, speech recognition and more, and will enable you to either engage in advanced studies or begin a challenging position in the real world.
