Program Description: Yale's graduate program in Linguistics is now open for applications for the PhD, to begin in August, 2015. Our nine faculty specialize in a range of linguistic fields, including (but not limited to) computational linguistics, language documentation, historical linguistics, morphology, neurolinguistics, phonology, semantics, and syntax. We focus on areas of linguistics that combine empirical methods with linguistic theory. Students are admitted to the university with five years of funding (including stipend and tuition remission) to pursue coursework and research in these areas. For recent examples of faculty and student research activities, see
Applications close January 2, 2015. For more information about application requirements and procedures, please visit,
