About

The discipline of Linguistics at the University of Georgia is the scientific analysis of the complex systems of language. It embraces phonology and phonetics, morphology, syntax, and semantics in the synchronic and diachronic study of contemporary as well as ancient languages.

Overview

Linguistics at the University of Georgia is interdisciplinary by nature, having 30 faculty members sourced from 11 different departments across campus. 

Our graduate program provides both a strong grounding in core areas of linguistics as well as the opportunity for specialization within the broad areas of formal linguistic theory, second language acquisition, language variation and change, and historical Indo-European linguistics. 

The program boasts a diverse research-oriented community, a faculty with a wide range of research interests, exceptional library resources, and a dynamic learning environment.

Programme Structure

  • Formal linguistic theory: This area deals with language structure and meaning, with the goal of constructing theoretical models to explain how humans acquire, produce, and comprehend language. 
  • Second language acquisition: This area offers a curriculum that treats the theoretical linguistic bases for learning languages. Students may concentrate on the acquisition of specific languages, such as French, Spanish, or German.
