Date: 06-Jul-2006
From: Gerda Hassler <hasslerrz.uni-potsdam.de>
Subject: Master of Arts Programme in Romance Linguistics

The Master of Arts programme in Romance Linguistics at Potsdam University
begins in fall semester 2006/07. Applicants must submit an officially
attested true copy of his/her original study transcript and an officially
attested true copy of his/her original degree certificate (Bachelor of Arts
or similar) to the following address by 30th September 2006:
Universität Potsdam
Vorsitzende des Prüfungsausschusses Romanistik
PF 60 15 53
14473 Potsdam

Building on knowledge gained from a linguistics curriculum at the
undergraduate (BA) level, the MA programme focuses on providing in-depth
knowledge and proficiency in the following areas of Romance Linguistics:
systematic linguistics (phonology, syntax, lexics), variation linguistics,
language change and language history, history of linguistics, text
linguistics, methods of linguistics. Using examples as illustration,
courses deal with linguistic methods and language-theoretical approaches,
particularly emphasising their practicability for research and their
scientific-theoretical and interdisciplinary relevance. Each student
contributes to a collaborative research project and completes an own,
self-directed research project as part of his/her Master’s thesis.

Students study one semester at a foreign university offering courses that
fulfil the requirements of the Master of Arts programme in Romance Linguistics.
Besides acquiring research competence in Romance Linguistics and applied
fields, students attain proficiency in two Romance languages in accordance
with the Council of Europe's Common European Framework of Reference for
Languages Level C2. Students also complete an internship as part of their
degree requirements.
