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.
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.
You should normally hold or expect at least a good 2:1 or equivalent in your first degree with pre-requisite study of (generative) syntax and (formal) semantics. We would expect you to have taken at last 40 credits (20 ECTS) in Syntax and Semantics. If uncertain whether your background is suitable, please contact us before applying.If your first language is not English and your first degree was not taken in an English speaking country, you will need to show that you meet our English Language requirements. We accept an IELTS score of 7, including 7 in both writing and speaking.
