Garden Path Series 4-12-19


Fri, 12/04/2019 - 3:00pm

The UA Linguistics Department hosted the Garden Path Series, a speaker series focused on possible career paths for individuals with linguistics degrees. 

Invited speakers were UA alumni who work as linguists in various industries. During each event, there was a short presentation from the speakers, focusing on how they got into their current careers, followed by a moderated discussion and Q&A.

Speakers Erin O'Bryan from Life Care Center of Wichita and Lionel Mathieu from Boston University joined us for the first of two such events on April 12th at 3:00PM in Communication 311.
