Join us in congratulating our 2015 language science PhD graduates on their excellent job placements around the world.
All 8 students were involved in the NSF-IGERT program, which has trained 50 PhD students from 10 departments since 2008. Of the 39 who have graduated to date, all are now in careers in language science, except for one who is now adding an MD to his PhD.
We wish the graduates well in their future endeavors!
