General/African Linguistics

The Ph.D. in Linguistics teaches a wide range of skills in research and teaching that enable graduates to move smoothly into postdocs or tenure-track positions. Our students are integrated early on in the program into research groups and research projects, often resulting in publications. Many of our graduates currently hold tenured or tenure-track positions around the world.


Students, especially in Computational Linguistics but also in the other fields, are encouraged to seek internships. We have contacts at a wide range of companies, and we actively support our students in their applications.
