Linguistic Field(s): Applied Linguistics
General Linguistics

FYI Body: Universitat Pompeu Fabra (Barcelona) is pleased to invite applications for
its new Master’s degree program in Theoretical and Applied Linguistics.
Applications are being accepted for the academic year beginning September 2011.

This MA unites state-of-the-art theory and practical applications of
linguistics. Students acquire a solid training in the fundamental areas of
linguistic theory, while specializing in one of the following three fields:
formal and descriptive linguistics, the acquisition and teaching of
language, or the study of the lexicon and terminology. All of these areas
of specialization can be given either a more theoretical approach or a more
applied approach, according to the student’s choice.

This MA provides postgraduate training suitable for subsequently entering a
doctoral program in any of these fields or for starting a career in any of
the professions in which language and linguistics play a fundamental role.
