Linguistics

A masters refers to the completion of a graduate study program that prepares students to further their knowledge of a specific subject or advance their careers. The majority of masters are granted by state or public universities.

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.

Education in the United Kingdom is a devolved matter with each of the countries of the United Kingdom having separate systems under different governments: the UK Government is responsible for England, and the Scottish Government, the Welsh Government and the Northern Ireland Executive are responsible for Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland, respectively.

England is the largest of the four "home nations" that make up the United Kingdom. It is also the most populous of the four with almost 52 million inhabitants (roughly 84% of the total population of the UK).

Master in Linguistics: Language and Society

University of Amsterdam
Campus 1 year

The Master's programme Language and Society has been set up for language students of various languages and language groups (English, German, French, Italian, Scandinavian, Slavonic, Spanish), who envisage a career in an international environment. In the programme students are prepared for such a career. [+]

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. The Master's programme Language and Society has been set up for language students of various languages and language groups (English, German, French, Italian, Scandinavian, Slavonic, Spanish), who envisage a career in an international environment. In the programme students are prepared for such a career. Since parts of the courses are offered in English, all students of Language and Society will develop their receptive and productive knowledge of English next to the target language of their specialisation. Language and Society at the UvA The Master's programme Language and Society offers students the opportunity to study language use and foreign language teaching and learning within institutional educational frameworks. Students specialise in one of the European languages or language families. The language (groups) that you can choose from for your specialisation are: English French German Italian Scandinavian Slavonic Spanish The programme focuses on the analysis of language, language use and variation, and language policy. It comprises courses on linguistics of the language of your specialisation (English, French, German, Italian, Scandinavian, Slavonic, Spanish). In order to prepare students for a future in an enterprise or a non-profit organisation in an international context, they may combine courses in linguistics with an elective course from the European Studies programme and/or an internship. Degree certificate Language and Society is an accredited degree programme of Linguistics. After successful completion of this programme, you will receive a legally accredited Master’s degree in Linguistics and the title Master of Arts (MA). The Master's in Language and Society does not give access to a post-Master teacher training programme. Career prospects Graduates will be able to pursue a career in translation, education, publishing, journalism, media, communications, the civil service, consultancy, insurance companies, or the information technology sector. Graduates can also go on to a PhD programme at the UvA, another Dutch university or a university abroad. When pursuing an academic career, it is advisable to discuss the possibility of joining the two-year Research Master's in Linguistics at the UvA. [-]

Master of Arts (MA) in English Language and Culture, track English Language

In the past, most of the attention within 'English language and linguistics' went to the philological (or diachronic) aspects of language (which are fascinating in a language dating from the early Middle Ages and which has changed so much).However today, the focus has shifted toward synchronic data on linguistic variation and the socio-cultural circumstances under which language is used. Special attention is given to theoretical models explaining how we learn and use language and what causes it to change.

 

 

Studying English Language at the University of Amsterdam

The University of Amsterdam's (UvA) English Department maintains a balanced approach to English literature and linguistics. New staff members are appointed with a view to enhancing our range of intellectual capability rather than that of our theoretical conformity. This inevitably results in lively classes (and staff meetings) and a stimulating intellectual environment. Master's level courses explore the space beyond formal and disciplinary boundaries, together with the overlap between not only various methodologies, theories, historical periods and social spaces but also between language and literature....
