For Graduate Studies in Languages, Linguistics, and Comparative Literature

In order to be admitted to the graduate program in Linguistics, you need to meet the admission requirements.

If you intend to study full-time and are interested in applying for a Graduate Teaching Assistantship that provides an annual stipend and tuition remission in exchange for teaching (languages and/or linguistics courses) or assisting in the department, please be sure to indicate this on your application and in your statement of purpose.

Application deadline: LLCL has a policy of "rolling admissions," which means we accept students for Fall and Spring enrollments. We process applications as they come in and do not have a fixed application deadline. It is recommended, however, that students interested in full-time study and teaching assistantships start in Fall and apply as early as possible (ideally, at the end of Fall for admission in the Fall of the following academic year). The teaching assistantships are limited and competitive, and a student stands a better chance of receiving one when applying early. It is further recommended that international students begin the application process as early as possible. In most cases, international students must obtain a student visa, which requires additional paperwork. More information for international students is available at the Graduate College website.
