The Department of Linguistics has a limited number of graduate teaching and

Our Department of Linguistics & TESOL offers a vibrant and engaging environment
in which to pursue doctoral studies. Our faculty have won numerous awards for
their teaching and research. The Department would be an excellent place to

-Second Language Acquisition Theory

Our faculty is growing, with two new professors to be hired this year in the
areas of language documentation and syntax and also in second language
acquisition. Facilities include a departmental Linguistics Lab and a new Speech
Sounds Lab. Resources for student research include department-owned corpora of
written and spoken language, software for concordancing, phonetic analysis,
audio editing, and statistical analysis, as well as a soundproof booth for
recording, additional computers for running experiments and data analysis, and
an ultrasound for phonetics research.
