Ph.D. Linguistics

The Ph.D. in Linguistics is an academic/professional research degree, designed to produce scholars who can carry out research on human language in any of its aspects within a contemporary theoretical framework.

Alongside a broad range of minor specializations, we offer Ph.D. specialization in:

  • Computational Linguistics
  • Language Revitalization
  • Phonological Theory
  • Psycholinguistics
  • Syntactic Theory

UA Linguistics is a leader in helping graduate students find careers outside academia for those who choose to do so. Our Ph.D. alumni work in the tech industry, as well as various other industries, in federal and tribal government language programs, as well as in other Native American community organizations.

This is in addition to the large proportion of students who continue to work in academia as faculty and researchers.
