Our graduates go on to jobs as language engineers, computational linguists and artificial intelligence engineers, among many other positions. The program is also an excellent foundation for doctoral work in the field.

The Master of Science in Computational Linguistics is offered by the Department of Linguistics. A self-sustaining, fee-based degree, the program is administered in partnership with UW Continuum College, which extends the reach of the UW with a range of online and on-campus programs for working professionals and other learners of all ages.
