Program Overview


M.A. Program in Computational Linguistics

The two-year M.A. program in computational linguistics is designed for outstanding students, preferably with an undergraduate degree in linguistics, computer science or the study of language. The M.A. provides a solid foundation for professional work in the field of computational linguistics, or pursuit of a Ph.D. in computational linguistics or theoretical linguistics.

Combined B.A./M.A. Program in Computational Linguistics

The five-year B.A./M.A. degree program in computational linguistics is designed for outstanding Brandeis undergraduate students who will have completed all requirements for the undergraduate B.A. or B.S. degree within four years, with a major preferably in either language and linguistics or computer science. Eligibility for the program is normally limited to students who have maintained a minimum 3.500 GPA in all linguistics and computer science courses taken.

Students complete the M.A. in computational linguistics by taking course requirements as an undergraduate, and in one additional (fifth) year of study. The M.A. degree provides a solid foundation for professional work in the field of computational linguistics, or for additional graduate study in computational linguistics or theoretical linguistics. Ideally, students should apply to the program by the end of the junior year. For more information, please visit the Graduate School of Arts and Sciences.
