MA in Advanced Studies in Linguistics


Course Description

Do you already have a Master's degree in linguistics, or linguistics and literature, with a successful research-based MA thesis on a linguistic topic? If so, consider the MA in Advanced Studies in Linguistics.

Emphasising sound methodological foundations for identifying and analysing linguistic patterns, a sense of precise and systematic language description, and the ability to develop and criticise theory, the programme aims to provide those who have acquired graduate knowledge of linguistics with the professional and creative skills required for research.

KU Leuven, the University of Ghent, the University of Antwerp, and the Free University of Brussels co-operate in this interuniversity programme.

This is an advanced Master's programme and can be followed on a full-time or part-time basis.

Objectives

The programme aims to provide those who acquired a general knowledge of linguistics in their undergraduate education with the professional and creative skills required to carry out research, emphasizing sound methodological foundations for identifying and analyzing linguistic patterns, a sense of precise and systematic language description and the ability to develop theory and criticize it.

By the end of the programme, students will have acquired:
- not simply a reproductive encyclopedic knowledge of the subdomains of linguistics, but also an active understanding of how the organization of and relationships between subdomains can differ depending on the theoretical approach;
- skill in reading and evaluating scholarly work in the cognitive and functional traditions.

Career paths
Graduates are thoroughly familiar with leading contemporary research in a particular field of linguistics and are thus well-equipped for research at a higher level (PhD programmes / research projects, etc.). Graduates also develop the communicative skills required to report, both orally and in writing, on research findings and insights. Those skills can be used in a broad range of professional contexts where the ability to understand, synthesise, and present complex phenomena is essential.
