Tell Us Your Story

We’d love to know what you’re doing and how your experience in the Department of Linguistics has made a difference in your career. We often brag that people who have a degree in Linguistics are exceptionally good at analysis and understand how to take more than one perspective towards solving any problem—we would love some stories from your life and work that might illustrate this claim. Please take our survey and let us know what you’re up to.

Support Our Students

As you know, our students are among the best in the university — they combine intelligence and curiosity with a strong work ethic, putting in serious hours to develop excellent analytical skills, often while working part time. Your support for scholarships will help us reward excellence and, by buying time for top students to do additional academic work, enhance our recruitment efforts.
