E-mail this message to a friend
The University of Marburg/Germany is pleased to announce Germany’s first
On-the-Job Online Master degree program without in-class teaching:
''Linguistic Web Development'', beginning in October 2011.
This Master is unique. Students do not have to come to Marburg to study
this Master, they can participate in this program while working on their jobs.
The MA qualifies students as linguistic web developers with the ability to
create web-based applications that present or otherwise process various
kinds of linguistic data. It focuses on:
- Consolidating knowledge about linguistics
- Training in different web development skills
- Introduction to combinations of linguistics and (language) technologies
The program benefits from 10 years of experience with the Virtual
Linguistics Campus (www.linguistics-online.com). All instructional content
of the program is available online and is part of different study programs.
It has been tested and used by numerous universities in Germany and abroad.
Constant updating and peer reviews ensure the quality of the content.
Additional print materials (the VLC workbooks) complement the courses. This
e-learning concept is--at least for the fields of linguistics and language
technology--unrivaled in the world.
Application Deadline: May 31, 2011

The LINGUIST List is under the umbrella of Eastern Michigan University and as
such can receive donations through the EMU Foundation, which is a registered
501(c) Non Profit organization. Our Federal Tax number is 38-6005986. These
donations can be offset against your federal and sometimes your state tax return
(U.S. tax payers only). For more information visit the IRS Web-Site, or contact
your financial advisor.
Many companies also offer a gift matching program, such that they will match
any gift you make to a non-profit organization. Normally this entails your
contacting your human resources department and sending us a form that the
EMU Foundation fills in and returns to your employer. This is generally a simple
administrative procedure that doubles the value of your gift to LINGUIST, without
costing you an extra penny. Please take a moment to check if your company
operates such a program.
