The Buckeye Language Network is pleased to announce the Graduate Interdisciplinary Specialization in the Language Sciences. The GIS in the Language Sciences (LS) draws from diverse fields of study, including Computer Science and Engineering, Communication, English, Education, Linguistics, Philosophy, Psychology, Speech and Hearing Science, and all the foreign languages. The study of language and its use from a variety of viewpoints is a common thread among these departments. The GIS-LS offers great flexibility to students as it allows a choice among five different focus areas that will allow students to take courses that complement their major: Language and Cognition, Language and Brain Function, Language and Society, Language and Technology, Language Description and Fieldwork. I am on the GIS-LS Advisory Board.
This fall a team from the Hubei Science and Technology Museum (HSTM) will come to OSU for the HSTM Core Talent Training Program. The program is part of OSU’s Global Gateway and is directed by Kathy Trundle (lead), Donna Farland-Smith and me. In addition to taking courses with OSU faculty, HSTM scholars will be matched with science museum professionals at COSI for mentoring and hands-on experiences in the science center.
