While the employment outlook for linguists has improved over the past decade, it is still not good. There are more qualified linguists than there are jobs for them, and most openings will occur as other linguists retire or leave the field. The U.S. Department of Labor predicts that employment for college and university social sciences professors will grow just 1 percent through 2028; linguistics is not a high-growth field.
