HLT is an emerging field of application for linguistic technology given the explosive growth of the (multilingual) internet, from search tools to large datasets in many specialized domains.
The Human Language Technology – Accelerated Master’s Program at University of Arizona targets advanced undergraduate students with background in programming and mathematical methods who wish to pursue a masters degree in HLT during and directly after their BA degree. Students are trained by faculty who bridge both sides of the formal linguistics and language engineering equation, and usually complete their MS in Human Language Technology one year after graduating with their BA degree.
The goal of this program is to train students for HLT-related jobs in industry both in Arizona and nationwide, and more generally, to promote computational methods as skills that linguistics students will find increasingly useful in this computerized and modern world.
“Choosing the Master’s program for Physiological Sciences at the University of Arizona was one of the best decisions I could have made in my education. Our department is warm and collaborative, offering an array of research topics and techniques underneath a vast and integrative umbrella of physiology. Beyond my research experience, I was presented with teaching opportunities, which I feel honed my skill of scientific communication. Having the dynamic research/teaching/class schedule not only kept me active but helped me reinforce material in multiple contexts. Overall, this program was exactly what I wanted in my segway into the medical sciences… and with my teaching assistantship paying for my tuition, how could I say no?”

- Students should complete their undergraduate requirements as soon as possible, but may not do so later than one semester before receiving their Master’s degree.
- Students finishing their undergraduate requirements later than one semester before receiving their Master’s degree will no longer be eligible for undergraduate scholarships, nor will they be eligible for graduate assistantships.
- Neither degree will be awarded until the undergraduate requirements are completed along with the Master’s degree requirements.
