IIS PhD Information
PhDs in linguistics traditionally focus on the structure of language and the process of learning it. (Relevant sub-disciplines include phonetics, phonology, morphology, syntax, semantics, and first or second language acquisition). The Interdisciplinary Information Science (IIS) PhD program with a Concentration inLinguistics encourages students to learn and apply methods and theories of information science and other affiliated disciplines to solve problems in core linguistics, which will give graduates an edge in both academic and nonacademic markets. Students will learn how to fashion highly interdisciplinary fields of study, such as digital language data curation, computational modeling of linguistic behavior, advanced technologies for language teaching, and neurolinguistic and psycholinguistic techniques for alleviating speech and hearing disorders.
The IIS PhD Program responds to the varied and changing needs of the information age; to the increasing recognition in individual, social, economic and cultural affairs of the central role of information and technologies for refining it. Graduates of the program are prepared to contribute to the advancement and evolution of an information society in a variety of roles and settings: as administrators, researchers and educators.
