A key mission of the Natural Language Processing Group is graduate and undergraduate education in all the areas of Human Language Technology.

We provide some basic information for prospective graduate students.

Stanford University offers a rich assortment of courses in Natural Language Processing, Speech Recognition, Dialog Systems, and Computational Linguistics. These include basic courses in the foundations of the field, as well as advanced seminars in which members of the Natural Language Processing Group and other researchers present recent results.

Faculty in the Natural Language Processing Group are also the co-authors of the two most widely used textbooks in Human Language Technology: Chris Manning and Hinrich Schütze's Foundations of Statistical Natural Language Processing and Dan Jurafsky and James Martin's Speech and Language Processing. Manning is also the author of a book on Information Retrieval.
