What Sets Our Programs Apart?

Our goal is to train you in the scientific study of the human mental capacity for language. Successful study in this area investigates the syntactic, phonological, and semantic/pragmatic properties of the language systems that humans naturally acquire, and asks what kind of underlying mental capacity is implicated by these properties.
