The Slavic linguistics track of our program has been considerably reduced in recent years. Because students of Slavic linguistics must do most graduate work in individual meetings with faculty, we aim to admit students who already have advanced preparation in the field and who are able and willing to pursue an independent course of professional training. Admitted graduate students will work on an individual course of study designed on the basis of the program described in our Graduate Student Handbook under “Ph.D. Program with Specialization in Linguistics.”
