Introduction

Ready to Uncover the Mysteries of Language and Mind?

Do you want to deepen your understanding of language in general or become an expert in linguistic diversity at a local or global scale? Are you interested in learning how humans perceive the world and process information or how to create artificial systems that resemble language, speech and human cognition? Do you want to know how to use digital methods to study aspects of human life such as history and social development?

In the Master's Programme in Linguistic Diversity and Digital Humanities, you may deepen your understanding of the nature and diversity of human language and cognition and the theoretical and digital tools for working with language and speech. You may also focus on digital methods in other fields within humanities or on human cognition and artificial intelligence. You can choose from five study tracks:

  1. Cognitive Science
  2. Digital Humanities
  3. General Linguistics
  4. Language Technology
  5. Phonetics

Studying

The Master's Programme in Linguistic Diversity and Digital Humanities (LingDig) is an interdisciplinary programme that combines five fields of study that interact on all levels: cognitive science, digital humanities, general linguistics, language technology, and phonetics.

During your studies, you get an understanding of the nature and diversity of human language and the theoretical and digital tools for working with language and speech. You may also focus on digital methods in other fields within humanities or on human cognition and artificial intelligence. Take a look at what our students say!

Your journey will begin with an introductory course common to all students that bring together the perspectives of all five study tracks, and along the way, taking courses from different tracks is made easy. Your teachers are leading scientists in their field, dividing their time between research and teaching. Courses are heavily integrated with current research topics in your field.

The integration of these five disciplines into one programme is unique - no similar programme exists anywhere else.

Stu­dents and stu­dent life

Student life and especially the student organisation culture is exceptionally rich and diverse in Finland. Also at the University of Helsinki, the student community is very active. More than 250 student organisations operate within the Student Union of the University of Helsinki (HYY), ranging from faculty and subject organisations to political and societal organisations, and from choirs and orchestras to sports and game clubs. Their activities include anniversary celebrations, academic dinner parties, cultural events, get-togethers and excursions.

As a student and member of the Student Union (HYY), you are entitled to many benefits and services. For example, affordable student housing, basic healthcare services, sports facilities and student-priced meals. You also get numerous discounts, for example on public transport fees across the country.
