Master's for Stanford Graduate Students

We offer an M.A. degree for Stanford graduate students which develops students' knowledge of linguistics, preparing them for a professional career or doctoral study in linguistics or related disciplines.  

This is achieved through completion of courses, including coursework in an area of specialization within the field, and experience with independent research in Linguistics.

For a complete list of program requirements, please see the Stanford Bulletin.

Only current Stanford graduate students are eligible for this program.  

Matriculated Graduate Applicants

Graduate students in other Stanford departments must submit an entire application consisting of a statement of purpose, transcript, three letters of reference (these letters can be those used at time of application, sent over by the home department), a master's program proposal, and the name of an advisor within their home department.
