- Registration to other MA seminars requires the approval of the faculty member who teaches the relevant seminar. (Seminar 861 is not open to BA students).
MA/PhD seminars usually involve reading and discussion of advanced research articles. At the end of the semester, students are required to write a paper on a topic of their choice.

In addition to the above graduate seminars, MA students are also allowed to participate in a small number of BA seminars during their studies (which would be counted for credit), subject to approval by the linguistics graduate coordinator.
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|
