Ph.D. in Language Science:
The Ph.D. in Language Science offers an integrative approach to the scientific study of language, exploring interfaces between traditional frameworks while fostering a more complete understanding of the human communication system. Our aim is to train self-directed, successful researchers capable of innovative thinking at the forefront of language science. This training emphasizes empirical grounding, state-of-the-art methods for hypothesis generation and testing, and effective scientific communication. Over the course of graduate training, students are equipped with the knowledge and skills necessary for research, teaching, and engineering careers in academia or industry.
