Nel Posted September 28, 2010 Share Posted September 28, 2010 (edited) The latest NRC Ranking on Linguistic programs is just out today. Instead of having a definite hierarchy, NRC has chosen to give ranks in terms of range. Nonetheless, we can still satisfy our urge to rank stuff using PhDs.org (link: http://graduate-school.phds.org/rankings/linguistics) which utilizes the NRC data but customizes the criterions we deem important. By placing importance to only the NRC Quality measure (equal weighting of extremely important to both regression-based and survey based quality score), Research Productivity (all criterions included as extremely important) and Student Outcome (only placement rate and overall support & outcome as extremely important), the list below ranks the top 11 Linguistic Ph.D. program (just because there were 2 equally ranked universities in the 10th position) in the U.S. (with the range in front and the relevant department behind). 1-1 John Hopkins University (Cognitive Science) 2-2 University of California-Los Angeles (Applied Linguistics) 3-9 University of Massachusetts Amherst (Linguistics) 3-9 University of Pennsylvania (Linguistics) 3-10 University of California-Berkeley (Linguistics) 3-12 University of Maryland-College Park (Linguistics) 3-13 University of Chicago (Linguistics) 4-14 Stanford University (Linguistics) 5-15 Massachusetts Institute of Technology (Linguistics) 5-16 San Diego State University (Language and Communicative Disorder) 5-16 University of California-San Diego (Language and Communicative Disorder) Feel free to comment if this runs counter-intuitive to your own perception, or if you think this is a good ranking of the current status of Linguistics Ph.D. programs in the U.S. Edited September 28, 2010 by Nel Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
