The Stanford University Department of Linguistics is a vibrant center of research and teaching, with a thriving undergraduate major and a top-ranked PhD program.

Our program emphasizes intellectual breadth, both disciplinary—integrating diverse theoretical linguistic perspectives with empirical investigation across languages—and interdisciplinary—drawing on perspectives from the other cognitive, computational, and social sciences, and the humanities.
