My character has completed her Bachelor's, Master's and Doctorate degrees. She got her PhD from Northwestern in Chicago, but her other two degrees could have come from anywhere (not specified in my story). She completed her undergrad in only three years.
Basically my question is, what sort of degree program would she have done? Major in Foreign Languages? From my understanding of the research I did, "Linguistics" is more the study of language and how it works (semantics, syntax, phonetics, etc), and not really about acquiring multiple languages.
Attempted research: the wiki page for "Linguistics", as well as several google searches such as "degrees in foreign languages" and "majoring in foreign languages".
