The Center for the Study of Languages and Cultures is pleased to announce that Mary Lusebrink, a graduate of the University of Notre Dame Class of 2022, has earned a Minor in Linguistics.

Mary is from Napoleon, Michigan, and has always been interested in learning more about languages and how they are developed and used. Linguistics seemed like a good fit. She says that she “would encourage anyone who wants to take a minor to try it! All the professors are really nice and the classes are super fun.” She said that her favorite moment during her linguistic studies was when Professor Kang’s kids made all the students little Valentine’s Day gifts and brought them into the class to share.  Mary’s major is English with a concentration in Creative Writing, and she plans on pursuing a job in publishing this summer.
