We have hands-on, linguistic training classes taught each summer by instructors who are active linguists all over the world the rest of the year.

Not sure where to start?

  • Look at our different training tracks: for linguists, sign language workers, literacy workers, and language surveyors. SIL-UND is a unique and effective training school for many different language-related roles.

Interested in more than just classes?  We have options for degrees and certificates. But, you’re also welcome to take classes as a non-degree student.

On this website, we’ve described some courses informally. If you want the official descriptions, see the UND academic catalog.
