The Institute of Linguistics, University of Malta, in collaboration with the Department of Intelligent Computer Systems and the Department of Systems and Control Engineering, is pleased to announce a new Master of Science programme in Language and Computation, opening in October 2014.

The programme, which lasts three semesters, offers students the possibility to investigate state of the art topics in the fields of Computational Linguistics and Natural Language Processing, with a particular emphasis on language in embodied systems (e.g. robots and virtual agents), and social media.

The M.Sc. has a taught and a research component. We welcome students from diverse backgrounds, especially those with a first degree in Computing, Language Sciences (e.g. Linguistics), Computational Linguistics, and related areas. Apart from the principal taught modules, students also have the opportunity to develop a tailored foundational programme in their first year of study, to develop knowledge and skills in fundamental areas, depending on what their background is.
