Subject: M.A. in Applied Linguistics, University of Cyprus

The University of Cyprus is going to launch a new postgraduate
programme in September 2004. The Department of English Studies offers
a two-year M.A. in APPLIED LINGUISTICS. Students who would like to
enroll for the next academic year should send in their applications
before April 15, 2004.

The Department of English Studies also offers a research-based
Ph.D. in Linguistics. Please contact Dr. Pavlos Pavlou for further
details at <>.

Candidates for the MA programme must have a BA in Linguistics or in a
related field (English, EFL, etc.). The programme is primarily
designed for those interested in Applied Linguistics as an academic
field and has the following main objectives:

- to offer students a solid background in the main areas of Applied
- to enable students to specialize in one area of Applied Linguistics
 (such as Language Learning and Acquisition, Language Use and
 Variation, Language Planning, or Teaching Methodology);
- to engage students in research in the field.

The duration of the programme is four semesters and the minimum
requirement for the M.A. degree is 90 ECTS points. The programme is
divided into two components: three semesters of taught courses (12
ECTS points per course, two courses per semester) and a fourth
semester of research leading to a thesis (18 ECTS points). The taught
component covers the main areas of Applied Linguistics and
familiarizes the student with research methodology. The thesis
component provides the opportunity for the student to undertake
research in a specialized area of his or her interest.

For more information and on guidelines for the application, please
contact the Graduate Programme Coordinator, Dr. Pavlos Pavlou, at
<>. The department's homepage can be found at , but please note that the pages
are currently being restructured due to the reorganization of the
School of Humanities at the University of Cyprus, so, unfortunately,
the information is not up-to-date in all respects.
