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 MA in Linguistics aims to give students a thorough grounding in modern theoretical linguistics. It is suitable both for those with some prior knowledge of the subject and for appropriately motivated beginners. The former category includes students whose undergraduate degree included a minority of linguistic course units, or who have studied linguistics of a more traditional type elsewhere. The latter category includes good graduates who have encountered linguistics only indirectly, for instance through psychology, philosophy, the teaching of English as a foreign language, etc.

The MA in Linguistics is run alongside two more advanced MAs, specializing in phonology and syntax, respectively.
