The three “core” graduate-level courses in Indo-European linguistics are offered every year, i.e. Indo-European Studies 205 (“Indo-European Phonology”; fall), Indo-European Studies 210 (“Indo-European Morphology”; winter), and Indo-European Studies 215 (“Indo-European Syntax”; spring).

The “proseminar” course Indo-European Studies 200 is normally offered every other year.

Indo-European Studies C260 (“Indo-European Comparative Mythology and Poetics”) is offered every two to three years.

Every year, one or more advanced seminars on specialized topics are offered under the courses Indo-European Studies 280 and 281 (“Seminar: Indo-European Linguistics”). Recent offerings have included “Indo-European Phylogenetics”, “Ancestral State Estimation in Indo-European and Beyond”, “Introductory Luwian”, “Indo-European Word Prosody”, “Phrygian”.
