About

The M.A. in Linguistics offered by the University of Wisconsin Madison, is a non-admitting degree. Language Sciences admits students for the Ph.D. degree in linguistics, and awards a master of arts degree to students in a UW–Madison Ph.D. program upon the completion of the M.A. requirements. See the Linguistics Ph.D. program entry for details on admission to the Ph.D. program.

Overview

At the University of Wisconsin Madison we offer a master degree in Linguistics. Language Sciences currently supports teaching assistantships for LINGUIS 101 Human Language, usually awarded to graduate students after their first year of study. Project assistantships are often available from both inside and outside the program. Advanced Opportunity Fellowships are possible for targeted students who are U.S. citizens or permanent residents. 

A small number of fellowships are available and are administered through the Graduate School. TA appointments in other departments, for instance in language departments or in the English as a second language program, are sometimes possible based on a student's skill set, since being a student in those departments is not a condition of employment.
