We are now accepting applications for the academic year 2003-2004
(beginning in October 2003).

The aim of this one-year taught master's course is to provide (a) an
advanced understanding of current research on first & second language
acquisition, attrition and language change from the perspectives of
linguistics and cognitive psychology, and (b) the methodological
skills needed to conduct novel research in these fields. It is aimed
at students with a background in linguistics, psychology or relevant

The programme consists of two and a half terms of course work,
followed by project work, which results in a dissertation. Teaching is
provided jointly by Theoretical and Applied Linguistics, Informatics
and Psychology.

The University of Edinburgh has one of the largest concentrations of
language researchers, studying the formal, computational,
psychological and social aspects of language. The language community
includes members from different subject areas with rich collaborative
links with many outside institutions. It is drawn together for
research within the Human Communication Research Centre and shares
M.Sc. teaching and Ph.D supervision.
