Languages

A Master of Science is an advanced degree that enables the graduate to hold a position of leadership in his or her field of study. It may provide the graduate with the opportunity to advance professionally, teach others in the profession, and/or earn a higher salary.

What is an MSc in Languages? This degree provides students with the opportunity to develop specialized knowledge in the ways meaning is made and conveyed through language. Students typically select a specific area of study related to a language with which they already have some expertise. For example, they may choose to specialize in the application of a particular language in the business world, the teaching of a certain language to non-native speakers, or the study of semiotic (meaning-making) processes in various contexts.

Acquiring a Master in Languages can enable students to increase their effectiveness as teachers or translators. It may also provide opportunities for research, publishing, or career advancement depending on the area of focus and its potential applications. This degree may make students more valuable to their employers, allowing them to command higher salaries.

The cost of completing this degree will vary quite a bit depending on the student’s chosen school and its location. Coursework completed online may be less costly than comparable work at a brick-and-mortar school.

There is a huge range of careers within which a Master of Science in Languages may be applicable. In addition to more obvious applications within language instruction and the study of language acquisition, students in almost any career may find that a master’s degree in languages has applications in their field. Because language is relevant to virtually every field of study, there may be opportunities for almost any professional to apply language-related expertise in his or her profession. For example, a historian may study the evolution of language within a given culture, while a business executive may study the relationship between language use and sales outcomes.

If you have an interest in a particular language or in the ways in which language impacts the field in which you are already established, search for your program below and contact directly the admission office of the school of your choice by filling in the lead form.
