Language Science Community

Our department plays a leading role in the largest and most integrated language science research community in North America

The University of Maryland is home to over 200 language scientists in more than 20 different departments and centers, including many faculty closely affiliated with Linguistics, as well as visitors to our department. The Maryland Language Science Center provides a channel for their mutual communication, and creates opportunities for education and research across units and disciplines, at the undergraduate, graduate and faculty levels. The culture thrives after an exceptional series of two grants from the National Science Foundation, 2008-2015 and 2015-2021, to develop graduate training in the language sciences.
