One of the central concerns of the two-year MA programme in English
Linguistics at Lille 3 is at the heart of what language is all about:
meaning, and how it is brought about. The programme is not committed to
one particular theoretical framework and the emphasis is on
*solid empirical description* (e.g., via corpus analyses) and
a *usage-based approach*. Students acquire a solid foundation for
linguistic analysis built on extensive and careful data analysis.
At the end of the Master’s programme, students are equipped with sound
methodological skills, a capacity for problem solving, and they have
learnt how to develop an argument and how to present it in a written or
an oral form.
The Master in English Linguistics in Lille 3 is one of the few
programmes in France which offer courses in *Cognitive Linguistics*
  and/or *Construction Grammar*.

A more detailed description of the programme, the course schedule,
information on registration (also for foreign students), and faculty
can be found on the MA web site:

A PDF version of the information brochure can also be downloaded from
the website.
