This program was awarded a score of 5 by CAPES in its 2013 assessment.
The Graduate Program in Language Studies began its activities in February 2011 after the former Graduate Program in Letters was broken down into its two respective concentrations: language studies and literary studies. The trajectory of the program actually dates back to the 1970s, when the master’s (1970) and doctorate (1973) in letters were created. These courses played a significant part in shaping the academic study of linguistics and Portuguese in Brazil.
The Graduate Program in Language Studies is notable for the broad-based view of human language it offers. It encompasses a variety of theoretical approaches and explores interdisciplinary subjects concerning signification, relationships between language, society, and culture, and relationships between language and cognition and language and technology.
The faculty, who work in four broad research areas, enjoy national and international acclaim and maintain research groups of excellence, who work in close cooperation with researchers from other institutions as part of inter-institutional projects. The program fosters integration between undergraduate and graduate levels through research projects and other activities. The Graduate Program in Language Studies also welcomes postdoctoral researchers and professors.
Students of the Graduate Program in Language Studies have the opportunity to acquire knowledge in any of the program’s areas of research, while also gaining new perspectives on complementary and contrasting features of different theoretical and methodological approaches, and having the chance to investigate specific topics of interest in greater depth.
Every year, selection processes are held for new masters’ and doctoral students. The successful applicants receive exemption from tuition fees and can obtain grants from funding agencies (CAPES, CNPq, FAPERJ).
