Programme overview

Lund University offers you a unique opportunity to pursue advanced studies in languages and linguistics at Master's level. The Centre for Languages and Literature offers students access to the most modern resources for research and education. 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.

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 and second- language learning. We draw on current theories within the frameworks of Cognitive, Functional 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 like grammar, semantics/pragmatics, 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.


Career prospects

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.
