  • 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.

Transformative Experiences

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.

Travel & Study Abroad

  • Both modern languages and communication studies offer opportunities for students to study abroad and complete international internships. The department organizes ongoing programs in Spain, Costa Rica, Brazil, Germany, France, Canada and India. Living and working in other countries and cultures broadens the perspective of our students far beyond what can be found in textbooks.
