Welcome to the LSA Directory of Linguistics Departments and Programs. Users may search the directory using the four query fields found below, or browse the programs at institutions organized by alphabetical order. Within each directory listing, programs and departments may provide data on: the types of program specializations offered; the number of undergraduate and graduate student enrollees; degrees awarded; number and type of faculty; along with demographic data on gender and ethnicity for both students and faculty.

Each linguistics program/department is asked to register an official departmental contact with the LSA Secretariat. To register, locate the listing for your program or department below and open it to view the current information. (Please note: if you do not see the name of your institution listed, please contact the LSA Secretariat to have it added.) Near the bottom of the listing, click on the field that says "Register as a departmental contact." An automated e-mail with your request will be sent to the LSA Secretariat. Once approved, this individual will have the right to edit program data. To access your departmental profile, you must first be logged in with your account. From your profile page, you cann access your department's profile from the 'My Programs' tab. When editing program data, be sure to save your changes in each section of the directory. This edited information will then be visible to any viewer of the program directory.

In addition to the entries for individual programs/departments, the LSA produces an annual report on the "State of Linguistics in Higher Education," based on the data provided within the directory. The first such report was issued in January 2014.

Please address questions about the directory and how your program/department can register by contacting LSA Executive Director Alyson Reed.
