About

In this Master in Applied Linguistics at the Free University of Bozen-Bolzano, you will learn that linguistics represents a set of knowledge that can be applied to a wide range of professional and research situations.

Overview

Studying languages first means learning how they work through the theories and methods of linguistics. However, knowing about linguistics is not enough to fully understand the role of a language in human communication. On the one hand, in fact, it is necessary to know how to "read" the social and cultural context in which languages are used, while on the other hand knowing the digital tools provided by modern language technologies is necessary as well.

At the end of your Master in Applied Linguistics at Free University of Bozen-Bolzano, you will be able to apply your knowledge to document, describe and analyse languages and dialects in very different social and cultural contexts. You will also be able to use and create language resources for professional and research purposes.
