Masterprogram i språk och språkvetenskap, Allmän språkvetenskap

Programme overview

Lund University offers you a unique opportunity to pursue advanced studies in languages and linguistics at Master's level. The Centre for Languages and Literature offers students access to the most modern resources for research and education. You will meet and study together with students from a number of different fields of specialisation. The languages of instruction are English and the language corresponding to the field of your specialisation. As a Master's student, you will have the possibility of receiving funding for a stay abroad to conduct research on your Master's thesis through grants available from the Birgit Rausing Language Programme.

Specialisation in General Linguistics

Within General Linguistics, typological linguistics, cognitive linguistics, psycholinguistics and neurolinguistics are profile areas. Typological linguistics attempts to define the confines within which language structure can vary, and to group the languages of the world into different classes based on their structural character. Cognitive linguistics seeks to obtain an understanding of the cognitive mechanisms that lie at the basis of the learning and use of language. Psycholinguistics and neurolinguistics investigate the psychological and neurological correlates of language structure and processing. In collaboration with the Humanities Laboratory, students and researchers of linguistics can study how human cognition is structured and also which mechanisms guide communication. With the help of experimental equipment at the laboratory, students can investigate how language is processed in the brain as people listen, write and read. For Master's students in General Linguistics there is also the possibility to delve into many other areas within the field of language and language processing.

Career prospects

With a Master's degree in Language and Linguistics, you are attractive for employers looking for a highly qualified individual with specialised knowledge in communication and language. An international MA in Language and Linguistics also provides you with the academic background you need in order to apply for doctoral studies in languages and linguistics.
