SIL-UND – pronounced ʔɛsajˈɛl juwɛnˈdi – was a fully accredited 9 week program that focused on descriptive linguistics for spoken and signed languages. The summer program lasted only two months, but people could take a semester of undergraduate or graduate credit. Classes could be used to earn an M.A. in Linguistics from the University of North Dakota.
The program is now being phased out, as M.A. students in the program finish their degrees. For further information, see our FAQ.
