Overview

This Master of Arts in Advanced Studies in Linguistics at KU Leuven offers a high degree of flexibility and learners have the option to craft individual programmes from background and specialization courses, enabling them to develop specific theoretical insights and methodological and analytical expertise.

Furthermore, in accordance with their own research interests, students can choose to follow intensive courses taught by international scholars or to do an internship in one of the many research groups at the universities of Leuven and Ghent. Special attention is paid to the writing up of research results and participation in the international scientific debate.

Two specializations are offered:

  • Cognitive and Functional Linguistics
  • Multilingual Language Learning and Teaching

Career

Graduates will be equipped with a high degree of contemporary research knowledge in a particular field of linguistics and will, therefore, be well-equipped to undertake research at a higher level (PhD programmes/research projects, etc.).

These transferable skills can be applied in a broad range of professional contexts where the ability to understand, synthesize, and present complex phenomena is essential.
