Having spent four of his adolescent years in Dutch schooling as a missionary kid, the young Dr. Müller’s course in life seemed destined to center on the study of language. Following a tour of duty in the Navy after high school, he took a B.A. in linguistics at the University of Tennessee, studying Greek and Hebrew, and then an M.A. in linguistics at the University of Texas at Arlington, studying with the Summer Institute in Linguistics, the academic arm of Wycliffe Bible Translators. After teaching English as a second language for several years, Dr. Müller began his program for a Ph.D. in English at Louisiana State University, studying medieval English language and literature, linguistics, and the philosophy of language, and writing his dissertation on the oral performative voice in Beowulf.
Dr. Müller has served as department chair for English and Modern Languages, as program director for the B.A. in Teaching English as a Second or Foreign Language, and as program director for the minor in Linguistics. Dr. Müller has been married for over 30 years and has one daughter.
