Linguistics at the University of Georgia is interdisciplinary by nature. In addition to core faculty who have appointments in the Department of Linguistics, a large number of affiliated faculty members are housed in other departments. 


About this Degree

All faculty teach linguistics courses, mentor students, and conduct research in various subfields of linguistics.

Our Linguistics graduate program at the University of Georgia provides both a strong grounding in core areas of linguistics as well as the opportunity for specialization within the broad areas of

  • phonetics and phonology
  • syntax, semantics, and morphology
  • pragmatics and discourse analysis
  • computational and corpus linguistics
  • sociolinguistics and language variation
  • historical (Indo-European) linguistics
  • language acquisition

A student's program of study, as determined by the student and their advisory committee, will focus on two areas of concentration (primary and secondary) within and among these broader areas. A program of study may also include courses or research projects in related disciplines such as anthropology, sociology, computer science, philosophy, or in the history or structure of a specific language or languages, provided that these courses are approved by the student's committee and the Graduate Coordinator.

Proseminar and colloquium courses are offered every year to enhance students' professional training and to provide opportunities to present and discuss current research projects.
