At the Linguistics MA programme offered at Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam, you will learn to analyse the learnability of languages, describe languages and even combine language with artificial intelligence.
During the Master's programme in Linguistics, you will learn to analyse how languages relate to one another. This skill allows you to describe relatively unknown languages. You will also examine which aspects of better-known languages are easy or difficult to learn. The programme focuses on different target groups such as children with dyslexia and multilingual adults, as well as computers that need to learn a human language.
When you successfully complete the Master's programme in Linguistics, you will have analytical and research skills in the area of language and language systems. In addition to these common skills, you will possess specific skills for your specialisation.
