The University of Verona The Department of Philology, Literature and Linguistics at University of Verona offers a two year (120 ECTS) Master's programme (Laurea Magistrale) in Linguistics.
Educational aims: The Master's programme in Linguistics aims to prepare graduates capable of making the most of metalinguistic analysis in teaching, in research and in its applications concerning socially relevant linguistic issues such as, for example: language pathologies, linguistic integration of immigrants, and analytical assessment of linguistic documents. These objectives will be achieved by way of a) in-depth study of advanced and up-to-date linguistic theories and methodologies that are integrated with a general knowledge of epistemology and psychology, and b) the application of these theories to specific linguistic problems in Italy and other European countries.

This programme is characterized by a strong international flavour. Most of its mandatory courses are taught in English, and its optional courses dealing with different languages are taught in their respective languages. The Master's programme covers such fields as linguistic theory, historical linguistics, history of linguistics, and theories of language learning. With regard to language-specificity, the programme allows a choice (a) among English, German, French and Spanish for courses dealing with general linguistics, and (b) among Germanic, Romance and Italian philology for philological studies.

The programme trains students in theoretical and applied linguistics through course work, participation in seminars, and supervised research within a supportive environment. Activities are structured to stimulate the active and ongoing participation of students, also through direct and personalised relationship with the teaching staff. Classes will be taught both by regular Verona staff and by international guests. The Master's programme in Linguistics aims to prepare graduates capable of making the most of metalinguistic analysis in teaching, in research, and in various applications concerning socially relevant linguistic issues such as language pathologies, linguistic integration of immigrants, and analytical assessment of linguistic documents.
