Message 2: M.A. in Scandinavian Linguistics

From: Marit Julien <mjulienisl.uit.no>
Subject: M.A. in Scandinavian Linguistics


M.A. in Scandinavian Linguistics
at the University of Tromsoe
1995-1996
(corrected version)

The Linguistics Section of the Institute for Language and Literature at the
University of Tromsoe, Norway, offers a one year course leading up to a
Master of Arts degree, starting the fall of 1995. The course is designed to
prepare students for research in generative syntax and phonology with
special attention to the Scandinavian languages. The course is open to
students from all countries with a background in linguistics corresponding
roughly to a B.A. with a major in linguistics, or a Norwegian Cand.mag.
The course is equivalent to 60 E.C.T.S credits. Instruction will be in
English. Proficiency in a Scandinavian language is not required, nor is
previous knowledge of Scandinavian grammar. Those who wish may follow a
course in Norwegian for foreigners during the whole year.
 Students pay no tuition, only a nominal registration fee. A
limited number of grants are available for students from Eastern Europe or
Developing Countries.
 The course will consist of lectures, seminars, and
tutorials, with examinations at the end of each term (fall and spring
term). In addition, the students are required to write two research papers.
In the fall of 1995 there will be a lecture series on Scandinavian
syntax and another one on Scandinavian phonology. In addition there will be
seminars, tutorials, and a crash course in Icelandic grammar. In the spring
of1996 there will be a lecture series on historical Scandinavian
linguistics, plus seminars and tutorials. Also during spring term the
students will write their two research papers.
 The teachers are Anders Holmberg and Tarald Taraldsen
(syntax), Ove Lorenz and Curtis Rice (phonology). Other teachers who will
contribute at various points in the course include Christer Platzack,
Cecilia Falk (University of Lund), Halldor A. Sigurdsson (University of
Iceland), Tomas Riad (University of Stockholm).
