The Departments of Linguistics and Computer Science and Engineering jointly participate in a Master of Science in Computational Linguistics. The mission of the program is to prepare students for a career in the Human Language Technologies industry. This program is on the STEM OPT extension list (CIP number 30.1801). If you are a current UB Linguistics PhD student interested in pursuing the MS as well, please view the PhD Applicants to MS page.
MS students are encouraged to seek internships they are interested in via Bullseye, or to participate in our local internship in the Natural Language Understanding Laboratory at the Department of Biomedical Sciences.
March 1: All international MA/MS applicants
April 1: All domestic MA/MS applicants
Application reviews begin January 15 of each year, and continue throughout the spring semester.
The graduate application fee is $75 U.S. (payable online or by check or money order made payable to the University at Buffalo). Students may be eligible for an application fee waiver courtesy of the CAS Dean's Office. To learn more, please visit the College of Arts and Sciences. If they qualify for a waiver, students may then submit their MS application for formal review without the application fee, provided the fee waiver application has also been submitted and accepted.
