Trevor Driscoll

In April of 2019, Trevor Driscoll was recognized at Arts in Motion as a Masters Student of Distinction from the Department of Linguistics. 

Wanting to continue his education, he applied to the University of Massachusetts Amherst and Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). He was accepted to both programs — two of the top schools for Linguistics in the world according to Top Universities

He will be attending MIT, pursuing his interest in theoretical phonology. 

His impressive journey began with a love for foreign languages in high school where he took four years of Spanish a year in German. In college at CSU, Chico, he took courses toward a teaching certificate. After taking a few linguistic courses, however, he realized his new passion for studying languages. 

He transferred to Fresno State where he received his B.A. in Linguistics with an emphasis in teaching ESL and also received his M.A. in Linguistics. He held an impressive academic record, such as a 4.0 GPA, presentations at international conferences, publications, editorial experiences, and fieldwork on endangered languages in Montana and North Dakota.

He is an adjunct lecturer at Queens College in New York and at Mercer County Community College in New Jersey.
