MA in Linguistics

Our MA programme, which is offered on both a part-time and a full-time basis, is primarily research focused, with a taught component in research methods. Students work in close collaboration with their supervisors on their chosen research topic.

Entry points

Since this programme is by research, students can be admitted either in February or in October of every academic year.

Who is the course intended for?

Typically, students wishing to read for an MA in Linguistics will have a substantial background in the subject at undergraduate level. For those students who lack such a background, a taught, year-long Masters Preparatory Programme can be designed. This is usually tailored to the specific needs of the student.

Since the core of the MA in Linguistics is your research project, the specific area in which you do an MA can vary substantially. The Institute of Linguistics is highly multi-disciplinary, with interests that range from the theoretical and applied, to the computational and experimental.

How to apply

Applications for our MA programme can be made online. However, prospective students are advised to get in touch with any potential supervisor(s) at the Institute in order to discuss their research topic and proposal prior to submitting an application.
