The Department of Linguistics, in close collaboration with Library and Information Science, Learning Technologies and Computer Science, offers a collaborative environment for developing innovative curricula that incorporate research on language with database design and management, text mining, computational and quantitative methods in linguistics and natural language processing.
The unifying philosophy for the linguists is that a broad typological linguistic sample is necessary to understand the extent and limits of human language structure, learning and use. In order to achieve this understanding, it is necessary to use the highest quality of linguistic data, i.e., corpora of naturally occurring language in human interactions.
In the Department of Linguistics, our focus is to ensure you receive the proper training and knowledge to have a successful career or to pursue a graduate education. The curriculum allows you to immerse yourself in the study of language to understand its structure, use, design and application.
