Dear LINGUIST List subscribers,

We are pleased to inform you that the UMass Boston has launched a new PhD program in Applied Linguistics.

The Ph.D. in Applied Linguistics at UMass Boston provides students with a comprehensive study and understanding of the theoretical, empirical, and practical dimensions of the field. The curriculum is designed to enable future researchers to understand the diversity of issues associated with the study of language in society from a variety of critical perspectives and frameworks. The different areas of inquiry are reflected in the scholarship of the Department’s outstanding faculty who are committed to research, teaching, and mentoring new researchers/scholars.
