Brandeis University's Department of Computer Science together with
the Program in Language and Linguistics is happy to announce an
expanded 2-year MA program in Computational Linguistics.
Applications for the Program are now being accepted (on a rolling
basis) for Fall 2010 Admission.

There are several tracks to accommodate students of varying
background, including those with little or no computer science, as well
as computer science students with little or no linguistics background.
For-credit internships with local companies are available in the second
year of study, along with opportunities to conduct research with faculty
from the department.

The MA in Computational Linguistics offers an exceptional opportunity
for students with degrees in Computer Science or Linguistics to
develop a mastery of the theoretical foundations and empirical tools
needed to apply Computational Linguistics to solve critical real-world

The curriculum is designed with the dual goal of preparing students for
more advanced studies in computational linguistics PhD programs, and
training students with practical skills to assume natural language-
related jobs in the industry.

Immerse yourself in the scientific study of language from a
computational perspective. Computational linguistics draws on the
expertise of faculty members and innovative interdisciplinary research
from computer science (natural language processing, artificial
intelligence, theory of computation, and programming methods),
language and linguistics (phonology, syntax, semantics, and
pragmatics), philosophy, cognitive science, and psychology.
