New Graduate Certificate in Computational Linguistics 
at Montclair State University

The Graduate Certificate in Computational Linguistics provides 
students with a basic education in the interdisciplinary field of 
computational linguistics.  The new program enables students to 
understand core algorithms and data structures in CL, and both 
symbolic and statistical methods in CL and their appropriate use in 

This one year program is designed for graduates in related disciplines, 
for example, Computer Science, Linguistics, or Electrical Engineering, 
who wish to gain sufficient expertise in this inherently cross-disciplinary 
area to effectively participate in language technology projects in 
industry and academia. Students will take graduate level courses in 
Computer Science and Linguistics.

Further details on the program can be found by sending email to
