Program Description: The Department of Linguistics is home to one of the oldest and most distinguished linguistics programs in the United States. Many avenues of linguistic research are pursued at Harvard, all against the backdrop of a firm commitment to modern linguistic theory. The Department emphasizes the inseparability of theoretical and empirical work, and the interrelatedness of diachronic and synchronic approaches to the study of language. Much of the strength of Linguistics at Harvard derives from the unique range and depth of the University's offerings in related disciplines, especially ancient and modern languages and the growing Mind, Brain, and Behavior Program. A matchless linguistic collection is housed in the University Library.
