The Master of Science Program in Computational Linguistics is a specialized degree offered by the Department of Computer Science. We offer an accessible, intensive two-year curriculum for students who have a linguistics, language, computer science, mathematics, or science background, as well as students without prior study of computer science or linguistics. The first year curriculum is tailored to the level of the students entering the program.
The Brandeis undergraduate linguistics program focuses on theoretical generative linguistics. It offers both a major and minor, with core courses on phonological theory, syntactic theory, formal semantics, and formal pragmatics, as well as a range of electives. The two-year master's degree program in computational linguistics is designed for outstanding students, preferably with an undergraduate degree in linguistics, computer science or the study of language.
The two-year Master of Science program in Computational Linguistics is designed for outstanding students with an undergraduate degree in linguistics, computer science, the study of language, or a related field. This interdisciplinary MS provides a solid foundation for professional work in the field or pursuit of a PhD in computational or theoretical linguistics. This foundation enables our graduates to excel in burgeoning fields such as:.
Introduction to computational techniques to explore linguistic models and test empirical claims. Serves as an introduction to programming, algorithms, and data structures, focused on modern applications to NLP. Topics include tagging and classification, parsing models, meaning representation, and information extraction.
Computational Linguistics (also called Natural Language Processing, abbreviated as NLP) is a field of vital importance in the information age. With growing amounts of speech and text data, the demand keeps increasing for automated tools to understand human language and NLP specialists to develop and operate these tools. Syracuse University is home to the Syracuse University Forensic and National Security Science Institute (FNSSI), which provides critical leadership for the protection of our nati...
