Trinity Western University

Graduate Program in Linguistics (M.A.)

Program Description

Dr. Keith Snider, Director

The M.A. in Linguistics program is a two-year graduate academic program that is strongly oriented towards field work. It prepares students to analyze and describe the linguistic structures of languages and to put previously unwritten languages into writing. Upon graduation, students are prepared for careers in linguistics, literacy, and translation. They are also prepared to gain admission into doctoral programs in linguistics.

Note: This program is offered under the written consent of the Minister of Advanced Education effective March 20, 2006, having undergone a quality assessment process and been found to meet the criteria established by the minister. Nevertheless, prospective students are responsible for satisfying themselves that the program and the degree are appropriate to their needs (for example, acceptable to potential employers, professional licensing bodies, or other educational institutions).
