Graduate Program

The Linguistics Program currently offers a Master of Arts degree in Linguistic Theory and Typology (MALTT), with faculty specialists in phonetics, phonology, morphology, syntax, semantics, historical linguistics, sociolinguistics, language acquisition, and the analysis of specific languages.  The MALTT degree emphasizes both linguistic theory, whose aim is to increase our knowledge about the fundamental nature of human language, and typology, the study of the domains of similarity among languages and the dimensions and degrees of their differences.  Training in computational research paradigms is present throughout the program.
