We would like to announce the start of a new Master's degree programme in
''English Language and Linguistics'' at the University of Freiburg from
April 2008.

The Department of English of Freiburg University is an internationally
prominent centre of research in corpus linguistics, variation studies and
functional-typological linguistics. In addition to a generally stimulating
academic working environment, students profit from an excellent library,
state-of-the-art computational infrastructure and a recently re-equipped
phonetics, audio and video laboratory.

The following three teaching modules are at the centre of this
research-based Master:

Module 1: Essentials of Modern English Structure
Module 2: Present-Day English: Regional, Social and Stylistic Variability
Module 3: Language Change and the History of English

Depending on their interests, students will specialize in one of the
following areas of concentration:

Module 4: Discourse and Communication
Module 5: Psycholinguistics: Language Acquisition and Bilingualism
Module 6: Corpus Linguistics and Language Technology
Module 7: Schools of Thought in English Linguistics

Applications are invited from students with an undergraduate degree in
English or linguistics and a fluent command of English (TOEFL-score of
620+, Cambridge Certificate of Proficiency or equivalent). The registration
deadline is 30 November 2007. Further details are available at:
