Department of Linguistics
The UWM Department of Linguistics is a vibrant and growing center of research in theoretical, experimental, and applied linguistics. Our faculty's areas of expertise include phonetics, phonology, morphology, syntax, semantics, second language acquisition, sociolinguistics, bilingualism, and historical linguistics, all investigated across a wide range of languages. We have three research labs, close regional and national connections with other departments, and an active department life.
UWM Linguistics offers an undergraduate major, as well as M.A. and Ph.D. programs in linguistics. We also offer undergraduate and graduate TESOL certificates.
