M.A. Linguistics Program Director: Thomas Graf
The MA program is designed to give students an opportunity to carry out graduate work in linguistics without making the long-term commitment required for a doctoral degree. The application process is competitive, with incoming classes generally consisting of 2 or 3 students, selected from both US and international applicants. The curricular focus of the MA LIN is on theoretical rather than applied linguistics, so students interested in applied linguistics at the MA level are encouraged to consider the MA TESOL program instead.
Please note: The deadline for MA linguistics admissions is April 15 for international students and June 1 for domestic students.
