Subject: European Master's in Clinical Linguistics

The European Masters in Clinical Linguistics (EMCL) is 
a university programme at advanced level (Master's type) in 
Clinical Linguistics, providing an integrated training in 
both neurolinguistic theory and clinical methods. Speech 
and language therapists who follow this programme, will 
acquire additional knowledge about the theoretical 
background of the language disorders and the relation 
between language and the brain. Students with a 
background in linguistics or psychology will become 
acquainted with the clinical situation, so that they will be 
able to develop better assessment and treatment materials. 
It is envisaged that a certain cross-fertilisation will take 
place as well, as a result of which speech and language 
therapists will contribute to the development of material or 
tests, while students with a more theoretical background 
get involved in clinical activities.

The programme comprises three terms and reflects the 
European character of the EMCL. In the first term, the 
student will study at his/her 'home university', i.e. the 
university where s/he is registered for the EMCL. This 
term is similar at the participating institutions and will 
consist of a number of core courses. During the second 
term, the student should go to one of the other 
universities, sponsored by the European Union under 
Socrates, to do specialised courses; the final term will be 
used for research classes and is done at the home 
university again. Finally, the student will write an MA-
thesis and attend a summerschool to finish the programme.

The Board-of-Studies consists of the members of the 
participating institutions, i.e. the universities of 
Groningen (NL), Joensuu (FI), Newcastle (UK), Oslo (NO), 
Potsdam (GE), Reading (UK) and Milan (IT). In 2001 - 2002 
the programme will be ran at the universities of Groningen 
(NL), Newcastle (UK), Reading (UK) and Potsdam (GE). All 
courses will be taught in English. The deadline for sending 
in an application form is the 1st of March 2001.
