Computer Science + Linguistics
Do you ever wonder how Apple’s Siri, Google’s Translate, or Amazon’s Echo work? Are you intrigued by advances in artificial intelligence, which enable computers to have human-like behavior and understand spoken or written language? Do you think you have what it takes to design user-friendly computer programs and interfaces using natural language communication? If you answered yes to any of these questions then you should consider the CS + Linguistics degree.
