LSA Directory of Linguistics Programs and Departments.
The MS program in computational linguistics is an intensive 2-year program that prepares you for mastery in the field, whether you want to work in industry or pursue your PhD.
The Department of Linguistics is home to one of the oldest and most distinguished linguistics programs in the United States. Harvard began offering higher degrees in “comparative philology,” as historical linguistics was then called, as early as the 1930s. By 1941, Harvard had a full-fledged Department of Comparative Philology, which became the Department of Linguistics a decade later.
The study of linguistics at Brandeis has a long and distinguished history, beginning in the late 1960s. Today Brandeis linguistics consists of the undergraduate program in linguistics and the master's degree program in computational linguistics. Brandeis also offers a doctoral degree program in computer science within which students can work on a range of topics in theoretical and applied.
All faculty teach linguistics courses, mentor students, and conduct research in various subfields of linguistics. Our graduate program provides both a strong grounding in core areas of linguistics as well as the opportunity for specialization within the broad areas of. phonetics and phonology; syntax, semantics, and morphology; pragmatics and discourse analysis; computational and corpus.
Students accepted into the Linguistics Ph.D. program are guaranteed five years of financial support contingent on satisfactory progress toward the degree. In addition to the Graduate School's doctoral support, the department also typically provides a summer stipend for a fourth summer if the student continues to work on research over that period. Support normally comes in the form of teaching.
Students enrolled in the MS in Computational Linguistics, Analytics, Search and Informatics. Purpose of the PhD Program. The goal of the Linguistics doctoral program is to prepare graduates to design and conduct original, empirically based research within a theoretical framework. Doctoral students prepare for careers in academic research and teaching or applied work in industry or other.
M.A. Computational Linguistics M.A. Computational Linguistics Program Director: Thomas Graf Our 3-semester program is designed to get students with little background in linguistics and programming to a level where they are ready to take on an internship after two semesters and enter the job market at the end of the third semester.
