Jost Gippert: Our Featured Linguist!

"Buenos dias", "buenas noches" -- this was the first words in a foreign language I heard in my life, as a three-year old boy growing up in developing post-war Western Germany, where the first gastarbeiters had arrived from Spain. Fascinated by the strange sounds, I tried to get to know some more languages, the only opportunity being TV courses of English and French -- there was no foreign language education for pre-teen school children in Germany yet in those days.

Program Description: The Division of Linguistics and Multilingual Studies offers both a Master of Arts by Research and a Doctor of Philosophy by Research.

The graduate programme in Linguistics and Multilingual Studies is dedicated to producing postgraduates in linguistics who will be able to demonstrate expertise in one or more areas within the field. The successful graduates will also have proven themselves to be effective and creative researchers. To that end, requirements for the programme include both core courses and focused coursework, as well as a thesis.

Our graduate programme is primarily oriented towards the PhD degree; we therefore envisage enrolling only a few students solely for the Master's Degree. Because of this, the Division will only consider applicants with a significant background in Linguistics.
