The current understanding of language as a means of social interaction and a tool for knowledge acquisition highlights the importance that language studies have nowadays. Given the importance of language, on the basis of the research areas at the School of Languages and, in tandem with the graduate programs offered, the Ph.D. Degree in Language Sciences was designed with the objective of training highly-qualified researchers who understand the social role of language and are committed to the advancement of linguistic knowledge.
The Ph.D. Degree is mainly oriented towards training autonomous researchers. Consequently, the program starts with a dissertation research project designed by the student and endorsed by an advisor with the highest degree. The advisor will determine the focus of the candidate’s research and the selection of courses that the student is to take during the program.
Ph.D. in Language Sciences.
Graduates from undergraduate programs in Argentine or foreign universities, or from non-university higher education programs (with at least a four-year duration), related to the Ph.D. area of concentration.

The degree program does not offer a fixed curriculum of graduate courses. In any case, courses must be selected based on the research topic Ph.D. students have chosen for their doctoral dissertation. In order to reach the 20 credits necessary for obtaining the degree, the Ph.D. student must apply for credit recognition for graduate courses completed at the School of Languages or at other national or foreign institutions during the degree program or up to ten years before enrollment.
The Ph.D. research project must be 10-15 pages long, with 1.5 spacing, Times New Roman, font size 12. Bibliography is not included in the page count.

To apply for credit recognition, candidates must submit a letter addressed to Ph.D. Program Director Liliana Anglada, together with the following documents:
- Authenticated copy of the certificate of completion for each course, which must indicate the course duration and date of completion. If the document is not written in Spanish, it must be translated by a sworn translator.
- Authenticated copy of the course syllabus bearing the official letterhead of the corresponding institution. It must include the professor's name and the year in which the course was taken. If the course was taken abroad and the document is not written in Spanish, it must be translated by a sworn translator.
Courses must have a minimum duration of 20 hours (one credit) and must have been completed during the degree program or up to ten years before enrollment.
