Graduation Reception

Every May, the Department of Linguistics holds a graduation reception and recognition ceremony. It’s a chance for us to congratulate and honor our graduates, and meet their friends and family.

Specific information about each year’s reception will be sent to graduating seniors by email, and posted on this web site, by mid-April. (Please note that the main Commencement ceremony in May 2024 will be on Saturday, May 11. The Linguistics ceremony may be held on that day as well; stay tuned in spring 2024 for updates.)
