You will meet and study together with students from a number of different fields of specialisation. The languages of instruction are English and the language corresponding to the field of your specialisation. As a Master’s student, you will have the possibility of receiving funding for a stay abroad to conduct research on your Master’s thesis through grants available from the Birgit Rausing Language Programme.
Specialisation in English
Candidates for a Master’s degree with a specialisation in English linguistics will be part of an internationally renowned research community, and they will meet scholars who are engaged in a wide range of research topics in English language and linguistics.
Areas of special expertise exist in the fields of semantics, text and discourse, syntax, second language learning, sociolinguistics and psycholinguistics. We draw on current theories within the frameworks of cognitive, functional, poststructuralist and generative approaches to the nature of language, and the Humanities Lab at the Centre for Languages and Literature provides us with the state-of-the-art equipment and expertise for carrying out experiments and corpus investigations.
The Master’s programme provides a solid foundation in core areas such as grammar, semantics/pragmatics, lexicology, the history of the English language and language variation. In addition, students take elective courses from a selection of courses within the field of linguistics.
With a Master´s degree in Language and Linguistics, you are attractive for employers looking for a highly qualified individual with specialised knowledge in communication and language. An international MA in Language and Linguistics also provides you with the academic background you need in order to apply for doctoral studies in languages and linguistics.
