Graduate Programs in Linguistics

The Department of Linguistics at Stony Brook University offers courses of study leading to the M.A and Ph.D. in linguistics, as well as to the M.A. in TESOL.  The department has a long-standing theoretical research focus on principles of linguistic organization within the components of grammar (phonetics, phonology, morphology, syntax, semantics) as well as in Second Lanuage Acquisition.   
Recently, we have introduced a new Computational Linguistics Laboratory and two new Experimental Linguistics laboratories supplementing our existing laboratories in Semantics and Phonetics, and we have developed new specializations in Speech and Language Pathology for undergraduates and Computational Linguistics for graduate students.  In addition to the full range of theoretical areas of linguistics, faculty expertise includes a wide range of languages and language areas including Austronesian, East Asian, Romance, Semitic, Slavic and signed languages.
