The Linguistics Department at Georgetown is committed to analyzing a diversity of linguistic phenomena through different modes of inquiry. Our view of language as a cultural, social, and psychological phenomenon leads us to examine the dialectic between what is universal and what is particular and unique across languages. We do so through analyses of the structure of language, the acquisition of language, the use of language in context, and computational models of language. Our course curriculum, departmental areas of research, and individual research interests allow us to incorporate a wide range of modes of inquiry, including those drawn from the Humanities, Social Sciences, Logic and Mathematics, and Natural Sciences. By valuing the legitimacy and relevance of research at every level of analysis, and acknowledging that no one model of language can provide all the answers (or even address all the pertinent questions), we provide a foundation for the following degrees in a department that is built upon a tradition of unique pluralism:
Bachelor's Degree
Master's Degrees
Doctor of Philosophy Degree
