PULSAR (or the Program for Undergraduate Language Science Ambassadors in Research) is a 4-semester program for students interested in language science — a uniquely broad field that cuts across many different areas of study, including social and biological sciences, computer science and engineering, as well as humanities, education, and clinical fields. PULSAR students select a diverse program of language science classes, engage in research and outreach projects, and become part of a strong interdisciplinary community of language researchers at Maryland. PULSAR is open to students in all majors who have taken one of several suggested prerequisite courses or have some comparable background in a language science field. Students earn a transcript notation for completing the program.
