International MA in European Linguistics

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.
