Description:Trinity Western University is committed to training leaders in professional, academic and mission fields. The MA Linguistics degree program prepares students to contribute and lead in the field of linguistics with a foundation in both theoretical and applied linguistics.

This two-year (39 semester hour) graduate academic program is strongly oriented towards linguistic field work. It prepares students to analyze and describe the linguistic structures of languages and to put previously unwritten languages into writing. While most graduate linguistics programs emphasize theory, this program emphasizes practical linguistic analysis in the development of language programs in roles such as language revitalization, orthography development, literacy program development, and translation.
