As the role of Urdu increased in various walks of life, the course realised its responsibility to gear itself towards providing scientific description of the Urdu language and producing materials needed for the development of Urdu language. From the very beginning the department provided post graduate teaching and research facilities leading to M.Phil and Ph.D degrees in Linguistics. The Aligarh Muslim University is one of the few universities, which offer a full fledged under graduate course in Linguistics for both boys and girls separately. Ever since the under graduate teaching was made available in the department, the academic activities of the department have accelerated. The Department of Linguistics at AMU is a relatively small department with a focus on theoretical linguistics overseeing two undergraduate programs ( for boys and girls separately), and four post-graduate programs. A new course PG Diploma in Language of Advertising, Media, and Market has been launched recently from the 2007-08 academic session. The department has a very articulated curriculum with course sequences of phonology, semantics, and syntax at both the undergraduate and the graduate levels. The faculty members in the department have research and teaching specializations in one of the core areas of theoretical linguistics (phonology, syntax, or semantics). The UGC recognized the department of linguistics at AMU as one of the leading post- graduate programs in India in scholarly quality and in effectiveness of teaching Ph.D. candidates, and awarded SAP to the department of linguistics. The undergraduate program of the department has been evaluated as one of the best linguistic undergraduate programs in the country by past external reviews, and our graduates are routinely admitted to the most prestigious linguistic post-graduate progrms in University of Delhi and JNU.
The inception of the Department of Linguistics in late 1968 provided an opportunity to advance teaching and research in linguistics with special reference to Urdu
