Linguistics at Columbia was lost. Once one of the strongest departments in the country, the Linguistics Department ceased to exist in 1989 due to 'internal disunity.' A special concentration in the discipline was revived for students in 2006 by members of the Slavic Languages faculty. Between 2006 and 2018, the Committee on Instruction approved independent studies in Linguistics for motivated students. In 2019, Columbia announced the return of the major program, open for students starting in Spring 2020.
