The Department of Linguistics is unique in bringing together faculty members across three distinct but overlapping areas of specialization: theoretical linguistics, applied linguistics, and Indigenous language revitalization.

Many of our students work at the cross-roads of three specialized areas, supported by collaborative teams of faculty members. In this way, we can tailor students’ programs to their particular interests and needs.

You can get a good sense of the kinds of work our students do by scanning the list of our recent graduates and their thesis topics.

We offer the following graduate programs and specializations:

  • MA in Linguistics
  • MA in Applied Linguistics
  • MA/MEd in Indigenous Language Revitalization
  • PhD in Linguistics
