Other MA/PhD Courses
Every MA/PhD student is required to register for Guided Reading (868) for one year during his/her studies; for MA students, this should usually be their 2nd year. Students registered to Guided Reading must attend the Linguistics Colloquium on Tuesday 14:00-15:30 regularly throughout the year; all other MA/PhD students (as well as interested BA students) are also encouraged to attend the colloquium.
Two courses, 922 and 987, are required courses for all new students in the Linguistics in Clinical Research (LCR) program. Other students whose BA is not in linguistics might also be required to take these courses.
|868||Guided Reading (Colloquium)||Required|
|922||Psycholinguistics and Research Methods||Prof. Sharon Armon-Lotem||Required 1st year LCR|
