The Language Acquisition and Bilingualism (LAB) Ph.D. concentration is a new option for students who wish to gain solid training in both psychological and linguistic theory and methodology. The program offers students advanced training in the research methods of psychology, particularly those relevant to the study of language, and in the theory and description of linguistic structure, which will significantly enhance their language-oriented research.
The Department emphasizes excellence in research, teaching, learning, and service in linguistics, language(s), literatures, and cultures. We endeavor to produce language-related research of nation/international significance in our various areas of interest.
UTEP Linguistics offers a Certificate in TESOL.
