MA/PhD Program

Grad student Farrah Neumann

The MA/PhD program is a combined program designed for students entering with a BA with the intention of earning a PhD. The program consists of core course work, requirements for specific Areas of Concentration (ARCOs), preliminary exams, comprehensive exams, and dissertation work. The ARCOs available are:

  • Applied Linguistics
  • Hispanic Linguistics
  • Sociolinguistics

If none of the above ARCOs is chosen, then the student will be enrolled in the General and Descriptive Linguistics Program.
