Lund University offers you a unique opportunity to pursue advanced studies in Languages and Linguistics at Master’s level. At the Centre for Languages and Literature, you will have access to the most modern resources for research and education.
You will study together with students from a number of different fields of specialisation, such as English, French, German, Greek, Modern Greek, Latin, Romanian, Spanish, Swedish/Scandinavian Languages, Rhetoric, Cognitive Semiotics, Phonetics and General Linguistics.
All Master's students partake in the obligatory courses common for all specialisations while simultaneously deepening their knowledge in their specialisations’ own courses. The programme thus combines a broad and sound base in advanced linguistics with an expertise in your own specialisation.
Specialisation in Arabic/Semitic Languages
The programme offers training that combines a breadth in linguistics with a specialisation in Arabic. The Arabic language specialisation focuses on the structure and use of Standard Arabic. It offers the students an opportunity to engage in advanced study of the rich and multi-faceted Arabic literature, from pre-Islamic poetry to medieval scientific and philosophical works to modern texts. By way of guided readings and content analysis of primary-source texts, students understanding of the language and the ability to identify and handle advanced problems of interpretation are increased.
The students will also be introduced to current international research within the field of Arabic studies. Once they have successfully completed the programme, they will have a solid competence in Arabic, including good communication skills.
The Master of Arts (120 credits) programme consists of the following:
1. Compulsory courses common to all specialisations (15): Philosophy of Science for Linguists (7.5), Fundamental Linguistic Methods (7.5)
2. Compulsory courses for each specialisation (30), and a Master's degree thesis (30)
3. Elective courses (45), to be selected from a list available from the programme coordinator

With a Master’s degree in Language and Linguistics, you will not only be well prepared for further academic studies (PhD studies), but will also be attractive for employers looking for a highly qualified individual with specialised knowledge in communication and language.
