Chair(s)
Mark James, Chair

The Interdisciplinary Committee on Linguistics coordinates interdisciplinary linguistics courses and programs in reference to scheduling, advisement, conferences, lectures, evaluations, and information dissemination. The committee is administered through the Department of English, College of Liberal Arts and Sciences, and its scope is ASU (especially the Tempe campus, but not limited to the Tempe campus).

The committee exists as the only venue for coordination and communication among the several graduate programs on campus related to linguistics.  Those programs include, but are not limited to:

  • The Interdisciplinary PhD in Applied Linguistics
  • The PhD in English with concentration in Rhetoric, Composition, and Linguistics
  • The MA in English with concentration in Linguistics
  • The Master of Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages
  • The Master of Arts in Spanish, concentration in Applied Linguistics
  • The MA in French
  • The Interdisciplinary PhD in Speech and Hearing Science
  • The MA and MEd in Language and Literacy, Bilingual Ed, and ESL in the Mary Lou Fulton Teachers College
  • The MA and PhD in Anthropology
  • The MA and PhD in Psychology

The committee attempts to coordinate graduate course offerings in the programs related to linguistics.  The committee co-sponsors occasional lectures and attempts to coordinate major events related to linguistics across the ASU campuses. The Interdisciplinary Committee on Linguistics is also the coordinating body for a graduate certificate in linguistics.
