Note to prospective students

Thinking about coming to Boston University to study Linguistics (among other things)?

The Linguistics faculty would be happy to meet with you and to answer any questions you may have. If you're planning a visit to campus, let us know, and we can schedule a time to meet. For information about information sessions and campus tours sponsored by the Admissions office, click here. If you visit during the academic year, you might also like to attend one of our Linguistics Events.

If you're not going to be in the area, we can talk by phone or exchange email.

Here is information about our undergraduate Linguistics program, our courses, and our faculty. You might be interested in looking at our Facebook page:
