About

The Department of Linguistics and Cognitive Science offers programs leading to the MA degree in Linguistics and Cognitive Science and the PhD in Linguistics.

Overview

The department offers the option of a combined BS/MA in Cognitive Science/Linguistics and Cognitive Science (this is not an option for Speech Pathology) and a combined BA/MA in Linguistics/Linguistics & Cognitive Science.

Areas for PhD specialization include theoretical linguistics (syntax, semantics, phonology, morphology), psycholinguistics (first and second language acquisition, language processing, neurolinguistics), endangered and under-described languages (linguistic field methods, language typology, language documentation), and applied linguistics. A Certificate in Cognitive Science is also available.
