University of Kentucky
The Linguistics Program at the University of Kentucky offers a Master’s degree in Linguistic Theory & Typology (MALTT). Students pursuing this degree receive training in theoretical approaches to understanding and explaining empirical linguistic evidence. We emphasize the analysis and modeling of linguistic patterns by means of computational and quantitative methods. Students typically follow either a morphosyntax track or a sociolinguistics track.
Most of our graduate students receive teaching assistantships (TA), for which they work as graders or instructors in linguistics or writing courses. We also have research assistantships (RA) for work on a variety of projects in a range of capacities, including editorial work on book projects, work on organizing conferences, and grant proposal preparation.
The Linguistics Program also offers both a major and a minor in linguistics at the undergraduate level. Our faculty conduct cutting-edge research in morphosyntax,sociolinguistics and historical linguistics. The University of Kentucky is located in Lexington, the heart of Kentucky's bluegrass region.
Students applying for admission to the MALTT program automatically become candidates for a TA/RA position. Assistantship decisions will be made after the application deadline of January 15 2014.
