Memorial has the only linguistics department in Atlantic Canada.
Our department offers a comprehensive curriculum delivered by experienced faculty, and our graduates are regularly admitted to competitive graduate programs, particularly in Linguistics and Speech-Language Pathology.
Through data-driven, theoretically informed inquiry, MUN faculty and students conduct research on language structure, language acquisition, and language variation and change. Our department also conducts work on language documentation and revitalization. Memorial is host to exceptional in-house data archives, broad library holdings, and state-of-the-art labs and analytical tools.
