  • Application Deadline
  • 24 months
The Master's degree programme in Linguistics at University of Verona provides students with advanced preparation in the science of language, in both its general and applied domains.


The Master’s degree programme in Linguistics at the University of Verona provides students with advanced knowledge of linguistics, in both its theoretical and applied aspects. This programme, entirely taught in English and other languages depending on the modules chosen by the students (French, Spanish, German, Russian and Italian) is a comprehensive international programme, with a specific focus on the European context.

The programme is enhanced through international lectures and modules held by guest lecturers and professors as part of an interdepartmental initiative with a strong interdisciplinary approach.

Upon completion of the programme, graduates will have gained a wide range of skills for the continuation of their studies, such as undertaking a PhD, and will be eligible to apply for professional masters (‘master di II livello’). Graduates will have also gained the necessary language teaching skills to apply for competitions in order to teach Italian as a second language (Competition Class A23).

Graduates will be also able to analyse theories and methods of investigation for the scientific study of language in all its manifestations (Italian, European, and ancient languages), as well as the study of language acquisition, and language development problems with a practical approach. Moreover, the programme includes the study of language sciences, a wide range of philological and literary disciplines, and psychological, philosophical and statistical-computational disciplines. In addition to lectures, seminars and experimental linguistics laboratories will be also offered in the course of the programme.

This postgraduate programme aims to train graduates with a high level of knowledge of the theories, methodologies and techniques of language investigation, who are able to apply these in various areas of work for research, teaching and counselling in the analysis of written and/or spoken materials. Career opportunities for graduates in linguistics, also in the international context, concern linguistic counselling in several areas, from the drafting and editing of texts to international cooperation activities, from the linguistic integration of immigrants to the management of plurilingualism, and the design and assessment of IT tools for the processing of linguistic corpora and verbal communication.
