NEW MA PROGRAMME IN PRAGMATICS AT UNIVERSITY COLLEGE LONDON
Beginning September 2004, the Department of Phonetics and Linguistics a UCL ( http://www.phon.ucl.ac.uk ) will be offering an MA in Pragmatics, alongside existing programmes leading to an MA in Phonology, MA in Syntax and MA in Linguistics:
MA PRAGMATICS (www.phon.ucl.ac.uk/educ/pg/pragmatics.htm)
MA PHONOLOGY (www.phon.ucl.ac.uk/educ/pg/phonology.htm)
MA SYNTAX (www.phon.ucl.ac.uk/educ/pg/syntax.htm)
MA LINGUISTICS (www.phon.ucl.ac.uk/educ/pg/linguistics.htm)
The MA PRAGMATICS, the MA SYNTAX and the MA PHONOLOGY are advanced programmes intended for applicants who already have a BA in Linguistics or similar degree and who are looking for a course specially designed to prepare them for PhD research in their chosen field of study. The MA in LINGUISTICS is intended for applicants with very little background in linguistics.
The MA PRAGMATICS consists of four courses in pragmatics, a research seminar in the relevant area and an additional option, chosen by the student in consultation with their advisor. In addition, since phenomena in one area can often only be understood in a larger
linguistic context, students must take one course each in phonology and syntax.
The MA programme can be taken full-time over 12 months or part-time over two years.
