Dear LINGUIST List community,

Last week, we announced a new initiative to revamp our existing linguistics programs database to better serve students and linguistics programs the world over. That previous announcement can be seen here:

As part of this initiative, we request that program administrations from linguistics and related departments around the world either submit their program to our database or update their existing description on our website. The new version of the programs portal has an extended number of search options and login-protected access for the program directors or other designated persons, to be able to directly maintain their profiles. We have already seen an exciting response from many programs.

The new programs search tool and submission form is located on our new website: This new tool will allow linguistics and language-focused programs to increasingly disseminate up-to-date information on their programs’ offerings and assist students to more easily locate programs that fit their needs.

Just a few examples of the information we hope to include are:

-Program name and location, including online programs
-Degrees offered (Bachelor’s, Master’s, PhD, etc.)
-Subfield strengths (e.g., phonology, language documentation, computational linguistics, etc.)
-Area strengths (e.g., African, Slavic, Romance linguistics, etc.)
-Faculty and their research focuses
-A prose description of the program, etc.

As always, we hope this better serves the needs of our global community. Stay safe, stay well, and we hope to see you soon on the LINGUIST List!
