The Department of Linguistics at UBC is an active center of research and teaching. We are well known for our work on First Nations languages, African languages, experimental linguistics (production, perception and first language acquisition), and linguistic theory (syntax, semantics, phonology, and phonetics). The department offers undergraduate and graduate programs leading to the B.A., M.A., and Ph.D. degrees. For more information about the department and the field of linguistics, go to the about page.
