The Department of Linguistics of the State University of New
York at Stony Brook has recently been authorized by the
State of New York to award the PhD degree in Linguistics.
The program is designed to prepare students for advanced
research in linguistic theory as well as its applications.
The Department currently has eight faculty members, and we

and speech synthesis.

In addition to the PhD in Linguistics, the Department also
offers the MA in Teaching English to Speakers of Other
Languages (TESOL) and the Doctor of Arts in Foreign Language
Instruction, with a concentration in TESOL.

Financial assistance is available in the form of
assistantships, fellowships, and tuition scholarships. There
are special opportunities for students of African American,
Hispanic, or Native American background.

For best consideration, applications for fall admission and financial aid
should be received by February 1.

Island, approximately 60 miles east of Manhattan and 60
