Our top-ranked doctoral program focuses on educating a small number of PhD students as high quality researchers and teachers. The atmosphere here is cooperative and collegial, with faculty and students collaborating on projects in a range of areas including phonology, syntax, semantics, phonetics, psycholinguistics, language acquisition, prosody, field linguistics, typology, historical linguistics, and morphology.
For students pursuing a B.A. degree, the Linguistics department offers several options for majoring and minoring in Linguistics, as well as innovative general education courses. A Linguistics major can focus purely on linguistics theory, or combine Linguistics with another field or language.
