mission & vision

At BAEL, we focus on language use in social contexts and the underlying cognitive processes involved. We work with naturally occurring text and talk as well as with experimental data.

Furthermore, we believe that students must be involved in this work and empowered to do research right from the start. After all, what is research but learning -- that is, finding out about life?

Our four-semester MA Applied Linguistics program gives students the chance to hone their empirical research skills as they work closely with professors and researchers in an intimate learning environment.
