MA in Comparative Syntax & Semantics

Course Description


The MA in Comparative Syntax & Semantics is aimed at students who have enough background in both syntax and semantics to know that they wish to specialise in those areas. The programme focuses on the cross-linguistic perspective, allowing students to strengthen their knowledge of formal syntax and formal semantics.

The MA in Comparative Syntax and Semantics will allow students to develop their own areas of interest and expertise in generative syntax and/or formal semantics.

Course structure

Students follow a two-term programme of lectures, seminars and tutorials in Autumn and Spring. The programme is completed with a research dissertation during the summer term and vacation.
