Query:   I AM INTERESTED IN EXTENDING THE REACH OF LINGUISTICS BEYOND
COURSES FOR FUTURE LINGUISTS AND/OR TEACHER EDUCATION. THERE ARE
DISUCSSIONS ACROSS THE U.S. ABOUT LANGUAGE POLICY, E.G. IDENTIFYING
ENGLISH AS AN OFFICIAL LANGUAGE, AND ONE GOING ON HERE IN OKLAHOMA.
SO IT WOULD SEEM IMPORTANT, NAY CRITICAL, FOR US TO TRY TO REACH
STUDENTS IN OTHER MAJORS AND EDUCATE THEM ABOUT LANGUAGE/LINGUISTICS.
HERE, WE OFFER A COURSE INLANGUAGE & CULTURE TO FULFILL A HUMANITIES
REQUIREMENT. I AM TOLD THAT SOME SCHOOLS OFFER LINGUISTICS AS A LAB
SCIENCE COURSE TO FULFILL THE LAB SCIENCE REQUIREMENT.

I WOULD LIKE TO KNOW HOW SCHOOLS USE LINGUISTICS-TYPE CLASSES IN THE
GENERAL EDUCATION CURRICULUM. WHAT LINGUISTICS-TYPE COURSES DO YOU
OFFER THAT FULFILL GENERAL EDUCATION REQUIREMENTS AND HOW/WHICH
CATEGORY DO THEY FULFILL?

I WILL POST A SUMMARY
