O que eu aprenderei?

The School of Languages, Linguistics, Literatures and Cultures offers a rigorous doctoral program ​in theoretical linguistics, drawing on work in syntax, phonology, phonetics, morphology and more to train authoritative scholars with a comprehensive understanding of the discipline. We have a long tradition of field work-based research and work closely with speakers, collaborators and educators in our local First Nations communities. Graduate students can contribute to Calgary Papers in Linguistics, an annual linguistics journal. They also participate in academic reading and working groups, including a psycholinguistics lab group, syntactic reading group, a Blackfoot working group, a translation working group and a research group that began as an informal club.
