Language science is by nature multidisciplinary and our programs support students in actively crossing departmental and university boundaries. The language science initiative provides students with the flexibility to create individualized programs of study involving combinations of faculty mentors. The list of programs and specializations below is just a starting point, and our current students and faculty mentors are happy to answer questions about the programs and about particular areas of interest.
LSD marked the 1-year anniversary of the Maryland Language Science Center, showcasing many ideas and initiatives launched over the past year.
Language Science Day (LSD) is a signature annual event for Maryland's language science community. Each Fall, LSD brings together up to 200 students and faculty from across the University and affiliated centers, providing opportunities for participants to exchange ideas, showcase new or ongoing projects, find out about research and training opportunities, spark potential collaborations, and get to know their fellow language scientists.
