I'm currently taking a degree in 'Cognitive Systems' which includes ComputerProgramming/Informatics, Cognitive Psychology, Linguistics, and a bit of Philosophy.
From the courses I've taken (mostly CompSci classes with a couple Psych and Ling), I've found the Linguistics courses to be just as relevant to UX design than the Psychology, if not more so. Discussions of how people communicate and perceive symbols influenced how I understand users, and hearing about different human languages demonstrates the variety of ways people think and process information. I've also gotten similar insights from the Anthropology courses I've taken.
Of course, different universities/colleges mean different things when they say a course covers 'Linguistics' (or anything else), so it takes a bit of hunting to see if such courses would be helpful for you.
