The University of Zurich is pleased to announce an innovative Master's
degree program in ''Multilingual Text Analysis - Comparative Corpus
Linguistics'', beginning in September 2011.
The Specialized Master in Multilingual Text Analysis is inspired by
comparative Corpus Linguistics. It combines Linguistics in English, German
and the Romance languages with methods and techniques from Computational
It has been designed for students who want to complement their interest in
Linguistics with a qualification in Language Technology. It is also
suitable for students of Computational Linguistics who want to gain a
multilingual perspective. Applicants should have a Bachelor degree.
Comparative Corpus Linguistics is a fast-growing discipline, which is
partly due to the multitude of translated texts that are now available in
digitialised form. The demand for interdisciplinary skills in languages and
computers is increasing, which has created many job opportunities.
Graduates are well qualified for jobs in translation and terminology
departments of international companies which manage documents in multiple
languages, and in the rapidly growing field of language technology development.
Application Deadline: April 30, 2011
