Congratulations to Jing Yu, who finished her PhD in Spring 2022 with an Emphasis in Applied Linguistics! She is now an Assistant Professor of International Higher Education at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. Prof. Yu presented her research at the Spring 22 colloquium on Friday May 26, 2022.
I chose the interdisciplinary emphasis in Applied Linguistics during my first year at UCSB. From then on, I took many courses (e.g., LING 232, LING 212), which is absolutely an addition to my PhD in Education. I strongly recommend this emphasis if you want to know more about sociocultural linguistics and discourse transcription.
