Conduct Valuable Research
Undergraduate research highlights student’s interest in linguistic diversity
Growing up in eastern North Carolina, Jessica Hatcher's ear became attuned to a range of dialects. Once she discovered NC State's linguistics program, this stellar young researcher has made the most of her opportunities to study how people talk.
In the College of Humanities and Social Sciences, we want students to become real critical thinkers, and we believe that conducting research helps do that.
