E-mail this message to a friend:
We are glad to announce that the international Master's programme in 
European Linguistics (MEL) at the University of Freiburg now starts 
twice a year (in April and October). Applications can be submitted until 
January 15 and June 15, respectively.

This well-established two-year Master's programme (course director: 
Professor Bernd Kortmann) is designed for students interested in an in-
depth study of theoretical and descriptive linguistics. It creates a solid 
basis for linguistic analysis and comparison, conveys a sound 
understanding of the rich and fascinating linguistic landscape of 
Europe, and imparts skills in up to four European languages. A wide 
variety of seminars and lectures are offered in the following five 

-  The European Languages: Structures, Typology and  Language 
-  Varieties and Minority Languages in Europe
-  Schools and Traditions of Linguistic Thought in Europe
-  Multilingual and Multicultural Communication in Europe 
-  The Linguistic History of Europe

An additional research module includes an internship abroad, a 
conference visit, and classes on research design and presentation 

The degree is designed to qualify students both for work in language-
related professions outside the university and for a further career in 
academia, typically in the form of a PhD. 

For application details and further information, please visit:

For further information on the wide range of opportunities and the 
exceptional infrastructure the University of Freiburg has created for 
Master and Ph.D. students in Linguistics (prominently including the 
Hermann Paul School of Linguistics), please visit the following website:
