The UC Berkeley Department of Linguistics provides a very rich environment for visiting scholars. Faculty from other universities around the world come to Berkeley to spend part of a sabbatical term with us, conducting research, sitting in on classes, and generally participating in the life of the lab. Their active participation adds significantly to the intellectual climate of the lab.
Students from other universities may apply to be visiting students at Berkeley. As a visiting student you can attend classes, use the university library, and make use of the facilities of the PhonLab. Unfortunately, we don't have funding for visiting students, but the students who do find a way to visit are a great addition to the lab!
