Joint degrees can be arranged with any of these or with any other department that is appropriate, given a student’s interests and career goals.

Students in the M.A. degree program take general course work in Linguistics. Students in the doctoral degree program take advanced seminars and pursue specific dissertation research, generally in one of the areas representing departmental strengths: African languages, computational linguistics, phonetics, phonology, cognitive science, second-language acquisition, semantics, syntax, applied linguistics or field linguistics.
