Linguistics at NEIU
The Linguistics department at NEIU was
established in the early 1970s, in the hey-day of modern linguistics.
Since that time, the department and program have evolved to keep in step
with changes in the field and in our student population. What has
remained consistent is the quality education, the dedicated faculty and
a challenging and exciting curriculum students have come to expect.
For the past 3 decades, our students have
used their MA in Linguistics to pursue and further their careers in many
areas including curriculum design, publishing, academia, forensics,
language documentation and revitalization, among other careers.
