Linguistics

A Masters degree is an academic degree awarded to individuals who successfully denote a higher level of expertise. There are two main types of Masters - taught and research.

Linguistics is the scientific study of language and its structure. The discipline focuses on the form, meaning, and context of languages. Linguists study the similarities and differences between languages, seeking patterns and looking for meaning in those patterns.
