UBC’s Department of Linguistics alumni have a longstanding history of individual achievements and collective success. Since the first Department of Linguistics courses were offered at the University in 1967, our alumni have made a mark for themselves internationally and in a vast diversity of careers.

We’re always delighted to hear from our alumni, both undergraduate and graduate! Since you’re already on our website, please drop us an e-mail ( and let us know how you’re doing. If you’re in the Vancouver area and would be interested in helping out the department (e.g., participating in our Tri-Mentoring program), please contact Wendy Trigg!
