The UB Linguistics Department offers a Master of Science (MS) program in Computational Linguistics and a Master of Arts (MA) program with specializations in General Linguistics, Germanic Linguistics, and East Asian Languages and Linguistics. The overall mission of our Masters programs is to provide students with a stronger background in linguistics to help them find more fulfilling jobs in industries employing language specialists, or in teaching positions where a strong linguistic background is an asset but a PhD is not required. Additionally, because linguistics is not necessarily available as an undergraduate degree in many colleges and universities, the MA program serves students who are interested in the discipline but would like to improve their background in the field before applying to PhD programs
