Program Description:

In just 2 years, students in Brandeis University's Master of Arts in Computational Linguistics program are equipped with the skills to work in cutting-edge technological and linguistic fields, including automated text analysis, speech recognition, information retrieval, web voice search, machine translation, cryptography and computer security, among others.  This dynamic interdisciplinary program draws on the expertise of faculty members and innovative interdisciplinary research in language and linguistic theory (phonology, syntax, semantics, and pragmatics), computer science (artificial intelligence, theory of computation, and programming methods) and philosophy, cognitive science, and psychology.

Program Highlights

  • For-credit internships with local Boston-area companies are available in the second year of study, plus opportunities to conduct cutting-edge research within Brandeis’ computer science and linguistics departments.
  • Most students receive partial tuition scholarships.
  • Excellent job placement record
  • Individualized curriculum accommodates each student's individual academic background, including students with little or no computer science, as well as computer science students with little or no linguistics background.

We encourage you to learn more about our program, located just outside of Boston and its world-renowned academic and industry resources -- an ideal location for internships and research opportunities.

Generous scholarships are available. Most of our master’s students receive sizable scholarships in the form of merit- and need-based aid.
