Linguistics Logo, Emory Program in Linguistics

The Program in Linguistics represents the contemporary field of linguistics, as it is situated at the intersection of the Social Sciences and the Humanities. Our central mission is to train students in the systematic study of human language and communication and to foster an intellectual climate for cutting-edge interdisciplinary research in linguistics. Through these emphases, we provide comprehensive training in linguistics and we prepare Emory students to meet the challenges of our multicultural society and an increasingly global community. One of our main goals is to foster enlightened citizenship through an understanding of contemporary language diversity.

We are fortunate to have a vibrant community of linguists at Emory. As of January 26, 2024, we have:
