Faculty Listing: http://www.ling.udel.edu/ling/
The Department of Linguistics offers programs leading to the MA degree in Linguistics and Cognitive Science and the PhD in Linguistics. In addition, the department offers the option of a combined BS/MA in Cognitive Science/Linguistics and Cognitive Science (this is not an option for Speech Pathology). The MA in Linguistics and Cognitive Science is a flexible degree, allowing students to design programs of study in areas of theoretical linguistics, cognitive science, and applied linguistics (including teaching English as a second language). Areas for PhD specialization include theoretical linguistics (syntax, semantics, phonology, morphology), psycholinguistics (first and second language acquisition, language processing, neurolinguistics), endangered and under-described languages (linguistic field methods, language typology, language documentation), and applied linguistics.
The program in Cognitive Science is administered by the Department of Linguistics and Cognitive Science. See MA information (above) regarding the MA in Linguistics and Cognitive Science. While there is no Doctoral degree in Cognitive Science, the PhD in Linguistics allows a secondary specialization in Cognitive Science, and advanced degrees in related disciplines (e.g., Psychology) also permit students to develop concentrations in the field. There are also regular graduate course offerings in Cognitive Science that allow individualized training in the field.
