MA in Language and Linguistics, Several Specialisation Options

Lund University

Programme overview

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 Arabic/Semitic Languages, English, Greek, Modern Greek, Latin, Italian, Romanian, Swedish/Scandinavian Languages, Chinese, Japanese, Phonetics and General Linguistics.

All Master's students partake in the obligatory courses common to 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.
