The M.A. degree is the highest degree offered.
WSU is the home of The LINGUIST List, and, because of the EMELD grant, it has a growing emphasis on fieldwork and endangered languages. Another emphasis is the intersection of theoretical linguistics, psycholinguistics, and neurolinguistics. Historical linguistics is a third area of strength.
