About Programme

The Department of Linguistics is pleased to offer both Master of Arts (MA) and Doctor of Philoshophy (PhD) degrees in Theoretical Linguistics.

  • Type: On campus
  • Start: September
  • Language: English


  • Duration: 24 months
  • Fee national: $3,950
  • Fee international: $8,032

Our students pursue original research in a variety of linguistic subdisciplines, including core theoretical areas (e.g. phonology, morphology, syntax) and combined areas (e.g. historical linguistics, sociolinguistics, cognitive linguistics). The department continues to encourage collection of primary data through fieldwork with native speakers of understudied and endangered languages, and increasingly our students are finding fruitful projects based on experimental and corpus data. All programs include coursework, generals papers (at the PhD level), the development of a thesis proposal, and the research, writing and defense of a thesis.

Because our programs of advanced research and study are individually designed, we ask that potential applicants consider the research interests of a potential advisor/supervisor, and require that applicants suggest a potential advisor as part of the application process. We feel we can offer the best training and support to students whose areas of interest are related to our established research areas. Unfortunately it is not possible for us to adequately oversee a research project in an area in which we offer no expertise. (Please note that at this time we do not offer any specialization in the areas of language teaching [e.g., ESL], literature or translation.*)
