About

The MA and the PhD in Linguistics are awarded by the Graduate College at The University of Iowa. Instruction is offered through the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences. 

Overview

Graduate programs in the Department of Linguistics from The University of Iowa emphasize theory and research. Students interested in non-university careers also may take courses in applied linguistics and other fields in connection with doctoral work.

Iowa's Department of Linguistics has particular strengths in phonology, syntax, and second language acquisition (SLA).

Career Advancement

  • Linguistics majors have found work teaching English as a second language overseas. 
  • Unique teaching opportunities worth exploring include those with the Peace Corps and Teach For America.

Programme Structure

  • The phonology curriculum emphasizes current theoretical perspectives, including optimality theory, and the collection, description, and interpretation of novel phonological and phonetic data. 
  • Courses feature extensive work in data analysis and problem solving, focusing on construction and evaluation of phonological theories, particularly in light of new empirical data.
