Best Masters in Anthropology in Netherlands 2017. Knowledge of language and analytic skills In a world of globalisation a profound knowledge of European languages is required for intercultural business communication. Although global English may serve as the lingua franca in international contacts, in many situations a thorough knowledge of the use of the mother tongue of the business partner can be very fruitful. Besides a good knowledge of languages and their use in society, for many jobs well developed analytical and presentation skills are required. A Master’s study of Linguistics helps students to develop both types of skills. Students are trained in analysing corpora containing data of the language of their specialisation and in organizing and interpreting their data. Furthermore, students develop their oral and writing skills by reporting their research results in the form of presentations, papers, a research project (term paper) and a Master’s thesis.
