Ask-A-Linguist Message Details
My boyfriend is currently interested in switching into a linguistics
major program, but through the research we have done it was
inconclusive which universities truly were the best. In a current
linguist's opinion, What university, preferably in the United States, is
the best for entering the field today?
Thank you for your time and consideration,
I agree with my colleague's recommendation to look for a best fit in terms of interests
I will add that any institution with a full linguistics department (especially one that
awards PhDs) will probably be able to provide what is needed. I would also look for a
school which combines both linguistics and the languages and sub-disciplines (e.g.
Classics, psychology, anthropology, computer science) of interest.
I believe you will find good candidate programs in all regions of the US and many at
less-expensive state schools.
