The Ph.D. in Linguistics, established in 1985, is designed to furnish students with a solid background in theoretical linguistics as well as to direct them to advanced study in a particular area of specialization. Areas for Ph.D. specialization include theoretical linguistics (syntax, semantics, phonology, morphology), psycholinguistics (cognitive science, first and second language acquisition, language processing, neurolinguistics), computational linguistics, and the study of endangered and underdescribed languages (linguistic field methods, language typology, language documentation).
The M.A. in Linguistics and Cognitive Science, established in 1994-1995, allows students to design a program of study in linguistics and cognitive science with tracks in linguistics and in cognitive science, e.g. theoretical linguistics, descriptive linguistics, language and cognition, the linguistic, psychological, philosophical, evolutionary and computational bases of cognition, psycholinguistics, and the study of endangered and underdescribed languages (linguistic field methods, language typology, language documentation).
