Applied Linguistics: MA
from the Bulletin
The Master of Arts in Applied Linguistics program provides an excellent background for more advanced work in linguistics or fields related to linguistics and the language sciences. Students who complete the MA degree have continued on to PhD programs in linguistics, and to clinical programs in communication disorders. Others have gone on to work in the fields of speech technology or education, among others. In addition, students who are planning a career in the linguistic study and teaching of their native language and in shaping the language policies in their countries of origin can benefit from interaction with the African Studies Center, the Modern Languages & Comparative Literature Department, the Department of Romance Studies, and the School of Education (SED).
