This paper presents results of an effort to survey graduate programs in order to describe the current state of graduate education in applied linguistics in the United States. Feedback from program chairs and graduate students informed the development of a database of 200 programs in applied linguistics and related sub-disciplines. This presentation reviews findings from focus groups and surveys, and discusses plans to disseminate information about the current state of graduate education in applied linguistics.
