The School of Linguistics was founded in December 2014. Today, the School offers undergraduate and graduate programs in theoretical and computational linguistics. Linguistics as it is taught and researched at the School does not simply involve mastering foreign languages. Rather, it is the science of language and the methods of its modeling. Research groups in the School of Linguistics study typology, socio-linguistics and areal linguistics, corpus linguistics and lexicography, ancient languages and the history of languages. The School is also developing linguistic technologies and electronic resources: corpora, training simulators, dictionaries, thesauruses, and tools for digital storage and processing of written texts.

On March 17, representatives of the School of Linguistics at the HSE Faculty of Humanities, participated in founding the All-Russian professional association of Theoretical and Applied Linguistics. Linguists have always been regarded as a special community, but in today's official classification of disciplines (and in the public mind) linguistics got lost somewhere between philology and the study of foreign languages. As a result, such promising research areas as computational linguistics, typology, cognitive linguistics, formal models of language, psycho- and neurolinguistics became trapped in no man’s land as if they were marginal and deprived of institutional residence. Now, the community of professionals decided it was time they declared the independence of their field.
