The USC Linguistics Program, with faculty in five academic departments

undergraduate minor. We currently have about 40 active students in
the graduate program, and were ranked 7th among linguistics doctoral
programs in the 2000 National Doctoral Program Survey conducted by the
National Association of Graduate-Professional Students
( The program's dual emphasis on
theoretical and applied aspects of linguistics is one of its major
strengths, and the great variety of research conducted by faculty and
graduate students is a reflection of the intellectual diversity that
characterizes the program. For more information about the program,
