Programme Structure

To fulfil the degree requirements of the MA in Linguistics, full-time students are required to complete 60 credits of  coursework, equivalent to 7 courses (2 cores and 5 electives, 6 credits each) and a capstone project (18 credits) in 1 year.

Capstone Experience

The capstone experience is a compulsory and unique component of our Programme. Students will have an opportunity to work with a linguist on a research topic to produce a piece of individual work which contributes to the knowledge of the field. The research will be presented in the form of an essay and a poster presetnation. High-calibre students who have the potential to engage in innovative research will be invited to write a dissertation.
