The program in Linguistics at University of Texas El Paso provides broad training in both theoretical and applied linguistics, preparing students for Ph.D. studies in Linguistics, as well as for careers in TESOL and language teaching.


The Linguistics program at University of Texas El Paso is distinctive in that classes are generally small and the atmosphere supportive, while at the same time the faculty are internationally recognized for their research achievements, which often involve active student collaboration. El Paso's multilingual character and its location on the U.S.-Mexico border make for a fascinating environment for anyone interested in language and language learning. Most El Paso residents are bilingual in English and Spanish. German and Korean are often overheard, and there are Apache- and Tarahumara-speaking communities nearby.

The research strengths of the department include the areas of phonology, syntax, lexicography, historical linguistics, first and second language acquisition, bilingualism, Spanish linguistics, English linguistics, and TESOL. Graduate students in these areas have the opportunity to work with members of the linguistics faculty in producing original work contributing to the body of linguistic knowledge .
