Program Description:

The M.A. Linguistics program provides students with an interdisciplinary education in the scientific study of language. Courses in general and computational linguistics serve students interested in cognitive linguistics, speech synthesis, machine speech recognition and language, and language variation and change. Upon graduation, graduates in linguistics offer a set of highly specialized skills to computer companies working in speech technology and artificial intelligence, and many pursue careers with companies specializing in these areas. A small but significant number of linguistics graduates enter Ph.D. programs for more advanced study. Other graduates pursue teaching careers in language and linguistics in domestic and overseas institutions. The department offers class scheduling to accommodate the needs of working students and small classes that promote faculty-student collaboration.
