Linguistic Anthropology

The study of language has been part of anthropology since the discipline started in the 1ate 1870s. This site is a place for linguistic anthropologists to post their work and discuss important events and trends in the field.

Universities offering graduate programs in Linguistic Anthropology

Over the past few weeks I have received email from a number of recent or soon-to-be college graduates asking for my recommendations for graduate programs in linguistic anthropology. I assume that my post regarding Getting started in (linguistic) anthropology has left readers in need of more concrete information.

Unfortunately, I don't really feel qualified to give advice on such schools, having attended only one myself. I do recognize the lack of good advice, though, so I'll offer this much: a list links to the web pages of programs you might want to check in to.

The schools listed here come from the Linguistic Society of America's directory of linguistics departments or programs, limited to those offering "Anthropological Linguistics," and from the American Anthropological Association's directory of anthropology departments, limited to those offering a PhD degree and featuring one or more faculty members who list "Linguistics" as an area of interest. These are mostly schools in the United States, with some in Canada, and a few from other English-speaking parts of the world.

This is not intended as an endorsement of any particular program. I'm sure there are many quality programs that I have missed. Additions, corrections, and comments are welcome.

Seems like it would also be a good idea to include linguistics departments that do qualitatively based sociolinguistics/discourse analysis, as there's so much overlap with linguistic anthropology.

Add the University of South Carolina to this list. We have faculty in Anthropology & the interdepartmental Linguistics Program [i.e. some are in English[.

Although NAU (Northern Arizona University)doesn't offer a PhD, their M.A. in Linguistic Anthropology program is absolutely wonderful and I highly recommend it. You can decide on thesis or applied track, meaning you can decide if you want to do your own research project or apply your knowledge towards a thesis.

I never believed in Love Spells or Magics until i met this special spell caster when i went to Africa to Execute some business. He is really powerful. My husband divorce me with no reason for almost 4 years and i tried all i could to have him back cos i really love him so much but all my effort did not work out, we met at our early age at the college and we both have feelings for each other and we got married happily for 5 years with no kid and he woke up one morning and he told me he’s going on a divorce, i thought it was a joke and when he came back from work he tender to me a divorce letter and he packed all his belonging from my house and left. i ran mad and i tried all i could to have him back but all did not work out. I was lonely for almost 4 year, So when i told the spell caster what happened he said he will help me and he asked for his full name and his picture. I gave him that. At first i was skeptical but i gave it a try cos i have tried so many spell casters and there is no solution, so when he finished with the readings, he got back to me that he’s with a woman and that woman is the reason why he left me, The spell caster said he will help me with a spell that will surely bring him back, but i never believe all this he told me i will see a positive result within 3 days. 3 days later, he called me himself and came to me apologizing and he told me he will come back to me. I can't believe this, it was like a dream cos i never believe this will work out after trying many spell casters and there is no solution. The spell caster is so powerful and after that he helped me with a pregnancy spell and i got pregnant a month later, we are now happy been together again and with lovely kid. This spell caster has really changed my life and i will forever thankful to him, he has helped many of my friends too with similar problem too and they are happy and thankful to him. This man is indeed the most powerful spell caster i have ever experienced in life. Am Posting this to the Forum in case there is anyone who has similar problem and still looking for a way out.. you can reach him here: CONTACT THIS POWERFUL SPELL CASTER TODAY VIA EMAIL: or on +2348083221034
