About Linguistics at the University of Kansas:
The Linguistics Department at KU has undergone significant changes in the past decade to position itself as a unique program that unites linguistic theory and experimental research. We have particular strengths in Experimental Phonetics and Phonology, First and Second Language Acquisition, Developmental Psycholinguistics, Second Language Psycholinguistics and Neurolinguistics, the Cognitive Neuroscience of Language, Linguistic Fieldwork, and Theoretical Syntax and Semantics. Our faculty members and graduate students study a broad range of languages including understudied language varieties in Asia, Africa, and the Americas. The department has six active research labs, which have all successfully competed for external funding and provide support for graduate studies. The department has both head-mounted and remote eye trackers, an EEG laboratory, and on the KU medical center campus, cortical MEG, fetal MEG and MRI systems. We offer both M.A. and Ph.D. degrees.
