Message 1: International MA and MPhil in Linguistics at U Amsterdam

From: Kees Hengeveld <kees.hengeveldhum.uva.nl>
Subject: International MA and MPhil in Linguistics at U Amsterdam

As of September 2002, the University of Amsterdam offers a Master of
Philosophy (MPhil) and a Master of Arts (MA) Programme in Linguistics. Both
programmes are taught in English or, in the case of language-specific
courses, in the target language.

The MPhil Programme in Linguistics is a one-year research oriented programme
which offers the opportunity to specialize in a wide range of linguistic
subdisciplines. The programme is open to a maximum of fifteen students and
is offered to selected, highly qualified students with an MA in the field of
Linguistics or an equivalent programme of at least four years of full-time
study at university level. The Master of Arts (MA) Programme in Linguistics
offers the same range of specializations, but aims at students with a BA in
Linguistics or an equivalent programme of at least three years of full-time
study at university level who wish to continue their studies at the
University of Amsterdam.

The University of Amsterdam is interested in attracting talented
researchers, and offers a number of partial tuition waivers to students
wishing to participate in the MPhil programme. Further partial tuition
waivers are available for qualified students from EU-countries who wish to
participate in the MA-programme.

Department of Education.

form on the SCALI website at:

http://www.isp.msu.edu/AfricanStudies/Scali/scali.htm
