Description:

The Cognitive Science of Language program at McMaster University is now welcoming applications at the MSc and PhD levels for the academic year 2021–2022. All applications received before or on January 31st, 2021, will be considered. All accepted PhD students will be offered a funding package worth a minimum of $25,000 CAD to cover tuition and living expenses. All accepted domestic MSc students will be offered a funding package worth a minimum of $16,000 CAD.

Based in the Department of Linguistics and Languages, the graduate program is interdisciplinary, including faculty from Humanities, Science, and Health Sciences. The program has a strong research orientation with expertise in theoretical linguistics (syntax, syntax-semantics interface, syntax-morphology interface), experimental syntax, phonetics, psycholinguistics, corpus linguistics, and neurolinguistics.

The program introduces students to the issues in those fields that form the nexus of, linguistics, cognitive science and cognitive neuroscience, and trains them in the research methods employed to study them.
