The BS in Computational Linguistics provides undergraduates with a solid grounding in the linguistic approach to the study of languages, the background in computer science that is necessary to successfully make use of human language technologies, and foundational knowledge of computational linguistic methods. This program includes offerings in both the Department of Linguistics and the Department of Computer Science and Engineering.
The field of Computational Linguistics is rapidly expanding due to the increased need for improved natural language processing in software applications of all kinds. An important aspect of the design of this program is that students take courses from both departments, taught by specialists. So, they will receive the same kind of training in computer science and linguistics that majors in each area receive.
