Program Description:

The Graduate Program in Linguistics provides intensive graduate instruction, integrating linguistic theory with practical application, in the areas of language research, documentation, description, and development of linguistic resources such as writing systems, literacy, native literature, and translated materials. The distinctive focus of the program relates to work in multicultural, multilingual settings involving both major and lesser-studied languages, both spoken and signed. It is designed to move students toward careers involving linguistic analysis, acquisition of languages and cultures, linguistic community development, literacy, or translation. Goal 1: Students will demonstrate knowledge of selected disciplinary subfields, publications and theoretical approaches within the field of linguistics. Goal 2: Students will demonstrate ability to conduct independent research in the field of linguistics, especially in languages and situations where relatively little previous study has been undertaken.
