The University of Virginia is a top-ranked public research university located

Washington, D.C. and the Blue Ridge mountains. We offer an M.A. degree in
Linguistics, and an M.A./Ph.D. degree in Linguistic Anthropology. 

The five full-time linguistic anthropologists on UVa’s Anthropology faculty
integrate the study of language with culture and social life with research
emphases in cognition, ethics, ethnopoetics, ideology and philosophy of
language, multimodal semiosis, space and place, language evolution, linguistic
prehistory, and language documentation, archiving, and revitalization.

noun classification; pragmatics; linguistic theory and method; African
linguistics (especially Bantu). 

Eve Danziger: Linguistic relativity; spatial language and spatial cognition;
cross-cultural philosophies of mind; conversational gesture; language change
and linguistic prehistory; social organization and social identity; Mayan
linguistics; morphosyntactic expression of verb argument structure.

ethnography of language documentation; language endangerment, revitalization,
and archiving; collaborative methods; ethnopoetics; history of anthropology.

Dan Lefkowitz: Language and culture; language and identity, language and
emotion; sociolinguistics; intonation, prosody, and voice quality; discourse
analysis; language and media, film studies, semiotics; Hebrew and Semitic
languages; peoples and cultures of the Middle East; Israel.

ethnography; place, ethics, and world making; language evolution and
prehistory; documentary linguistics; indigenous languages of the Americas:
Zapotec, Chatino, Chinantec (Mexico), Na-Dene (U.S.A and Canada).
MA/PhD in Linguistic Anthropology

Graduate training in Linguistic Anthropology at UVa stresses the integration
of social theory with ethnographic practice, and our close ties to the
Interdepartmental Program in Linguistics affords the potential for substantial
training in linguistic analysis. Graduate students take courses in a wide
range of contemporary issues in anthropology and develop breadth across
anthropological subfields to motivate questions that span both linguistics and
social theory. There are many opportunities for cross-disciplinary dialogues
with other UVa units; for example, with music, global development, education,
medicine, biology, and media studies. UVa also has a world-class reputation at
the forefront of the digital humanities and invests heavily in resources that
facilitate the use of digital technology in student and faculty research.
Mentoring is provided for in-depth fieldwork, grant writing, teaching and job
placement to help students develop skills to be creative and responsible
teachers, engaging researchers, and citizens for our world.

The Department of Anthropology offers guaranteed five-year graduate fellowship
support for all admitted PhD students, along with additional grants for
foreign language study, conference travel, and pre-dissertation research.
