Subject: M.A. Linguistics programs

Is anyone out there interested in discussing the
teaching of linguistics at the Master's level and the
direction or design of M.A. linguistics programs? As
part of its assessment effort, our program at Eastern
Michigan U. has just been given a small grant to start
an e-mail discussion list devoted to the special
concerns and challenges of master's-level linguistics
programs: e.g., curriculum (including design of
individual courses), exam and thesis requirements,
student recruitment, placement of graduates, etc., etc.
We could share ideas on virtually anything, including
syllabi and exams for individual courses.

Right now, I'm anticipating that the discussion will
last only 6-8 months. That is, I'm conceiving of the
interchange more as an e-mail conference than an ongoing
list. However, this is something that the participants
can decide later if they wish.

SO: if you're a director, graduate advisor, or teacher
in an M.A. linguistics program, let me know if you might
be interested in joining such a list. Please send
replies to my personal e-mail address below (this new
list is not connected to LINGUIST):

I look forward to hearing from you.
