Study set-up and major topics of a Masters in Linguistics

The study of linguistics consists of a detailed analysis of the world’s languages. The Masters programme consists of several fields, for example the grammatical structure of a language, the meaning of language and the use of language in society. As well as learning other languages orally and in writing, the Master of Linguistics also teaches programmes to overcome communication disorders. Depending on the university you choose you have the option of specialising in the above mentioned subjects and many more.

Linguists try to establish what types of structures are shared by different languages and the extent to which languages may differ from one another. In order to be accepted for a Master of Linguistics you need proof of a Bachelors degree in a similar subject. The standard study duration lasts one to two years.
