As one of the top four graduate programs in theoretical linguistics, the close-knit Doctor of Philosophy in Linguistics prepares you to conduct individual creative research as early as possible in your graduate career, working very closely with faculty. You’ll concentrate your study in the area of syntax, semantics, phonology, phonetics, psycholinguistics, language acquisition, morphology, or computational linguistics. Upon graduation, you’ll be well-prepared to become a professor in the field of theoretical linguistics at universities around the world.
