The Department of Linguistics at the University of Colorado Boulder will offer a virtual preview event on December 1-2 to provide information and support for excellent potential graduate applicants. Our major purpose is to introduce our department, and its diverse community of learners, to applicants from historically underrepresented groups.

CU’s Linguistics Department is a major center of interdisciplinary research in sociocultural and interactional linguistics, computational linguistics, cognitive-functional linguistics, language documentation, and psycholinguistics and experimental linguistics. The Department's orientation is empirical: we use analysis of conversational data, acoustic measurements of speech, computational modeling and statistical analysis, psycholinguistic experimentation, and fieldwork in local communities and abroad to gain insights about structural properties of language, test theories about language, and explain patterns of language use.

The Department strives to provide a supportive environment for research and learning by fostering diversity and inclusion across the areas of curriculum, student body demographics, and faculty demographics. We recognize that students and faculty from backgrounds not historically well represented in graduate programs enrich our field of study and enhance the educational experience of all students. We encourage students to use the tools of our field to address critical problems in our world.
