- MA in Linguistics
- MA in Language Documentation and Description (LDD) [NEW!]
- MS in Computational Linguistics, joint with the Department of Computer Science. [NEW!]

The MA in LDD provides training in contemporary methodologies and technologies of LDD, emphasizing the broad application of these skills in many types of community work. The MS in Computational Linguistics trains students to be conversant both in the analysis of language and in computational techniques applied to natural language. A tuition award (for reduced tuition) is available to the strongest applicants. Deadline for applications is March 1. For more information on these programs see:
