The Faculty of Humanities consists of six departments: History,
Archaeology and Area Studies; Art, Religion and Cultural Sciences; Media

The chair in Language Acquisition comprises teaching and research in the
area of language acquisition in a multilingual context, with a potential
specialization in second language acquisition, early child bilingualism,
specific language impairment in a multilingual context, and related areas.
The study programme is mainly centred around Bachelor's and Master's
programmes on specific languages offered by the faculty, as well as the
programme in general linguistics. The professor will also participate in
research Master programmes and other overarching curricular subjects that
are not related to any particular language (for the curriculum, please see

Faculty's BA programmes are taught within the College of Humanities,
while MA and doctorate programmes are administered within the Graduate
School for Humanities.

Research focuses on the study of Language Acquisition and is conducted
at Amsterdam Center for Language and Communication (ACLC). In
defining its research programme for the period 2009-2012, the Faculty has
identified three research priority areas: Cultural Heritage and Identities,
Cultural Transformations and Globalisation, and the interfaculty area of
Cognitive Modelling and Learning. For further information about the Faculty
research programme, please see: http://www.hum.uva.nl/onderzoek.
