The Master Program in Linguistics at Western can be summed up as not purely formal, nor purely social, nor purely applied, but as all of these: the humanistic and scientific study of language as an abstract system of symbols that is known and used.
What the Program offers:
-both course-work and a research component;
-a broad range of faculty specializing in different fields in linguistics;
-two years of graduate funding for qualified applicants;
-a state-of-the-art Theoretical and Applied Linguistics Laboratory.
