|Support Description:||The Linguistics Program at the University of South Carolina invites applications for MA and PhD studies in linguistics for the academic year 2013-2014. The Linguistics Program at the University of South Carolina makes the financial support for its graduate students a priority. All PhD students in the program are fully supported for 4 years. The program has been particularly successful in securing additional support through the University of South Carolina Presidential Fellowship Program, the University of South Carolina Presidential Teaching Fellowship Program, the College of Arts and Sciences Dean’s Dissertation Year Fellowship competition and now has additional opportunities for fellowship support through a generous endowment from the Bilinski Foundation. Linguistics at USC is comprehensive in its scope. Its mission is to train students to pursue research and teach in a wide range of linguistic sub-disciplines. The program strives to develop students' analytical skills and to encourage creative, critical approaches to data, models, and theories. In addition to requiring all students to have a theoretical foundation in general linguistics, phonology, and syntax, the program affords students the opportunity to take coursework or pursue specializations in other areas: discourse analysis, French/German/Spanish linguistics, historical linguistics, linguistic anthropology, philosophy of language, phonology, psycholinguistics, second/foreign language acquisition and teaching, semantics, sociolinguistics, and syntax. The Linguistics Program at the University of South Carolina is interdepartmental in nature and interdisciplinary in orientation. It has strong ties to the departments of Anthropology; English Language and Literature; Languages, Literatures, and Cultures; Philosophy; Psychology and English Programs for Internationals. In addition, the Program has the support of consulting faculty in Communication Sciences and Disorders; Computer Science and Engineering; and the College of Education, whose areas of expertise are in, or related to, linguistics, and who frequently serve on thesis and doctoral committees.
