E-mail this message to a friend:

The Department of General Linguistics at the University of Münster, Germany
would like to announce that applications for the Master in Linguistics
(starting in the spring semester) will be considered until January 15th,
2009. The program focuses on research and thus provides an ideal
preparation for a doctoral program in linguistics.

The Master in Linguistics combines a strong emphasis on naturalistic data
with sophisticated methodological and theoretical reflection:
-Empirical: collecting, analyzing and archiving of linguistic data
(linguistic field work, descriptive linguistics, language documentation);
this includes use of state-of-the-art technology
-Theoretical: grammatical theory, linguistic typology, language universals
research; a special focus is placed on the interfaces between social
cognition, language structure and language use (discourse and conversation
analysis, anthropological linguistics)
-Cross-linguistic: major focus on non-standard varieties of European
languages and non-European languages

For further details, including admissions information, application
procedure, and illustrative schedule see
or contact Dr. René Schiering (rene at punksinscience.org).
