Paul Reed

Assistant Professor, Department of Communicative Disorders, The University of Alabama

Why did you decide to do an MA or PhD in linguistics?

I decided on a PhD in Linguistics after finishing my MA in Romance Languages (Spanish). I realized that it was language that fascinated me, and I wanted to be a researcher. I had always been intrigued by sound, playing with accents and imitations. Once I realized that you could study language itself, I was hooked. In particular, in Dr. Weldon’s Varieties of American English class, I realized that I wanted to study my home variety, Appalachian English. Once I understood that I could go home and study how I grew up talking, that sealed the deal.

Tell us about your current job.

I am currently an Assistant Professor of phonetics and phonology in the Department of Communicative Disorders at the University of Alabama. I teach undergraduate courses in phonetics, graduate courses in phonology (and sometimes research methods), and also courses in sociolinguistics. I teach future speech-language therapists about how we produce speech, but importantly, how speech varies.

Why did you choose our program? Did you get what you wanted from the Linguistics Program?

The Linguistics Program at USC was a perfect fit for me. My interests have been (and still are) very interdisciplinary, and the very nature of the program suited what I wanted to do. I was able to concentrate on Sociolinguistics, but also take significant coursework in phonetics/phonology. Along the way, I was able to take courses in the COMD department, which set me up for a post-doctoral fellowship after I completed my PhD.

I most certainly got what I wanted - very supportive environment, great teaching, and the ability to cross-disciplines.

What is your favorite thing in Columbia, SC?​

One of the best things about Columbia is that the more you know the city, the more interesting and fun things you discover. There is a thriving arts and music scene, great food, and a vibrant culture for young professionals. And, as cliché as it might sound, the people of Columbia are what make it special. There are great people in the city, and they would be my favorite thing!

Thor Sawin

Associate Professor at the Middlebury Institute of International Studies at Monterey

Why did you decide to do an MA or PhD in linguistics?

I did my MA in Linguistics and TESOL at Michigan State University, then I taught English and German overseas for six years.  I realized that I wanted to be involved more deeply in the field of language teaching, as so many of the issues facing the world could be alleviated if people were able to more fully understand each others’ ways of speaking.  I choose a PhD in Linguistics over Applied Linguistics, because with a solid foundation in theoretical Linguistics, you can still get a good job in the field of Applied Linguistics.  Often Applied Linguists have a weak foundation in the Linguistics that they are applying, and the strong theoretical foundation in the field I earned in my MA and PhD have given me so many tools that I can apply to the different practical issues which applied linguists are concerned with.

Tell us about your current job.

I am an Assistant Professor in the school of Translation, Interpretation and Language Education at the Middlebury Institute of International Studies at Monterey, a graduate school of Middlebury College located in Monterey, CA.  I teach linguistics courses such as Language Analysis, Sociolinguistics, Applied Linguistics Research, and Second Language Acquisition to future language teachers.   Teaching Masters-level students is very rewarding, and I love the practical and applied focus of my institution, and its engagement in equipping language teachers to help solve social inequalities.

Why did you choose our program? Did you get what you wanted from the Linguistics Program?

South Carolina’s program stood out to me in several ways.   I loved that you could pick two fields of study to be simultaneous foci, and to have committee members from a variety of subfields of linguistics.  My dissertation topic straddled the boundary between different fields, and South Carolina was uniquely flexible  in supporting that interdisciplinary research.   Having specializations in both sociolinguistics and second language acquisition helped me get my current position, and I use both fields daily.   At South Carolina, the faculty genuinely enjoyed working together, and the collegial and supportive atmosphere was why the program was recommended to me in the first place.  I consistently experienced the faculty at USC ‘going to bat’ for me, and helping me and my classmates get funding and opportunities to grow as scholars.  I also got the experience to teach a wide variety of courses, including the chance to design, propose and teach an elective of my own making.  This is a unique opportunity which really helped me in the academic job search.   When asked during my job search “Why South Carolina?” it was easy for me to explain how the small department size, the interdisciplinary focus of the program, and the supportive attention of the faculty made it a very refreshing place to earn a PhD.

What is your favorite thing in Columbia, SC?​

Although I wasn’t looking forward to the city of Columbia, it really surprised me.  There is a surprisingly vibrant scene of young professionals and great venues for music, excellent southern food, and entertainment.  I appreciated having natural opportunities right on my doorstep (the RiverTrail, Congaree NP) and also an easy drive away (hiking in the Blue Ridge Mountains, the beaches of the Lowcountry) as a break from graduate school.   Most of all, I appreciated how inexpensive everything in Columbia is.  My graduate assistantship went a long way in a city like Columbia, and enabled me to be able to afford taking advantage of Columbia’s food scene. 

Anna Mikhaylova

Lecturer in Russian at University of Queensland

Why did you decide to do an MA or PhD in linguistics?

I was fascinated with how language works and how it is learned since high school and had a FL teaching degree equivalent to MA in TEFL as well as MA in TESOL when I realized I was equally interested in the social and cognitive dimensions of Bilingualism and that I was fascinated by researching language as much if not better than teaching it.

Tell us about your current job.

I am currently an Assistant Professor of Linguistics at the University of Oregon.

Why did you choose our program? Did you get what you wanted from the Linguistics Program?

At the time I was interested in studying the social aspects of bilingualism and wanted to work with Carol Myers-Scotton. However, taking several SLA courses from Mila Tasseva-Kurktchieva brought me back to language acquisition/learning, although more from the cognitive angle.

What is your favorite thing in Columbia, SC?​

The 300 days of sunshine a year!

Sherry Warren

Writing-Grammar Coordinator, English Programs for Internationals at University of South Carolina

Why did you decide to do an MA or PhD in linguistics?

I returned to the USA to pursue a MA in Linguistics, with a view to teaching English at an Intensive English Program in the United States.  Though I was having a wonderful time in Thailand teaching English, I realized that I would need to get an MA in order to continue to do what I loved to do in the USA.  While pursuing my MA, I became very interested in SLA research, so I entered the MA/PhD program to develop my skills as a researcher with a view to contributing to the knowledge base within the field.

Tell us about your current job.

I am the Academic Director for the International Accelerator Program at the University of South Carolina.  The International Accelerator Program is a bridge program for international students who are either still learning English or would like additional cultural support during their first year at USC.  I am also a consulting faculty member in the Linguistics Program where I teach undergraduate and graduate courses, and am engaged in several research projects relating to second language development and assessment.  

Why did you choose our program? Did you get what you wanted from the Linguistics Program?

I chose USC because it was in my hometown; I was delighted to find that it also enabled me to pursue my academic and professional interests.  The Linguistics Program at USC is unique in that it allows for interdisciplinary opportunities and collaboration among related fields.  Students with a very broad range of research interests can find what they are looking for.

What is your favorite thing in Columbia, SC?​

Increased funding for the arts has led to a rapidly developing arts community, which provides extensive opportunities for newcomers to meet people.  Columbia is also close to both majestic mountains and beautiful beaches, while being a very affordable place to live.
