Have you ever wondered about the miracle of language? Linguistics is a study that can help to find answers to this vast and complicated question.
A Master in Linguistics is about the routine study of language as a structure as well as the many sub-fields of Linguistics that overlap with other sciences, such as Semiotics, Psychology, Sociology, Forensics, and many others which makes the subject much more exciting and appealing. Other than Theoretical Linguistics, there exists also Descriptive and Applied Linguistics. Each of these branches, which are explored in Master in Linguistics programs, seeks solutions to countless puzzles that language offers people and linguists on an everyday basis. For instance, Phonology helps to come up with an answer to why languages sound as different as they do; Neurolinguistics unveils the secrets of the language processing in the brain; Linguistic Anthropology gives answers to the diversity of language registers within one language and deals with sociological and political issues. There are numerous sectors for specialization within a Master in Linguistics program.
A Master in Linguistics can offer you a great range of choices, from the most theoretical studies of grammar or cognitive studies to the most practical issues of internet and computational linguistics or language education and translation.

Master in Creative WritingLocated in the center of San Francisco, USF’s Master of Fine Arts in Writing Program offers graduate students an intimate, personalized learning experience while taking advantage of San Francisco’s vibrant, eclectic literary scene. Founded in 1986, the MFA program is designed to instruct writers in creative techniques, to nurture their individual development and vision, and to help them thrive in the larger community of writers.The two-and-a-half year MFA program offers workshops and literature seminars in the genres of fiction, poetry, and nonfiction. The distinctive design of the program emphasizes the connection between reading and the students’ own writing and fosters collegial relationships among faculty and students in small classes. All courses are taught by accomplished practicing writers, so that both literature seminars and workshops pay detailed attention to craft.

Because depth of understanding is crucial to successful writing, students also take seminars and workshops that focus exclusively on one genre—long fiction, short fiction, poetry, or nonfiction. Students’ work culminates in a creative thesis, a book-length manuscript that is conceived, composed, and revised with extensive faculty mentoring.... [-]
