The Department of Linguistics at the University of Konstanz (Germany) is
pleased to announce a new MA programme in Multilingualism, starting in April

Multilingualism is an exciting, highly interdisciplinary and increasingly
relevant field of study. Besides linguistic and methodological foundations,
the Konstanz programme focuses on language acquisition and processing in
individuals who use more than one language regularly and on the impact that
multilingual societies can have on such individuals. 
Our enthusiastic team offers training in research methods, including data
management, visualisation, and statistics. Students will learn how to conduct
experimental research, with direct access to the linguistic research labs
(e.g., soundproof cabin, eye tracking, EEG) and technical support. They will
also have the opportunity to focus on linguistic foundations in the
Linguistics programmes and to engage in interdisciplinary work with related
disciplines, such as Education, Political Sciences, Sociology and Psychology.
Graduates of this programme will be familiar with the factors that influence
the acquisition and processing of more than one language throughout the
lifespan as well as factors that determine multilingualism in larger
societies. They will be capable of developing ideas for future research that
will advance the field.

The MA Multilingualism is designed as a 2-year programme (4 semesters) with a
workload of 120 ECTS-points. Semesters 1 and 2 are spent in Konstanz. In
semester 3, students can choose between a stay abroad, studying
multilingualism at a partner institution, or an internship with a company or
research group relevant to the degree. Semester 4 will be dedicated to thesis

Languages of instruction are German and English. To be eligible to apply,
students will have a BA degree in linguistics, sociolinguistics or related
areas, as well as English language skills equivalent to B2 of the Common
European Framework of Reference for Languages. 
Application deadlines are 15 January for starting in April and 15 June for
starting in October.
