ENG 573 History of the English Language (3 credits) Generally offered: Fall of Even Years
From the development of the Indo-European language family to English as a world language, this course explores the influence of historical and cultural developments, internal changes, and language attitudes on the English language. Students will come to understand how languages begin and why they change, how language is a product of its socio-cultural history, and why there are dialectal differences in the English heard around the world. They will complete a research project related to language learning and teaching writing. Prerequisite: Senior standing at MWSU with successful completion of EDU Junior Experience or BS or BA degree.
