What Language Do Bears Speak?
As a class project in her Invented Languages course at SFA, Lindsey Antonini developed a language for bears called Arktosk. Her work garnered a mention in a New York Times article entitled Create Your Own Language, For Credit.
After graduating from SFA with a Bachelor of Arts in English literature and a minor in linguistics in 2012, Antonini commenced doctoral studies in linguistics at the University of Georgia.

At SFA, we believe students benefit greatly from hands-on learning in and out of the classroom. Transformative experiences are at the core of our academic philosophy.
