Program Description: The goal of the master en linguistique is to give students in-depth training in general and applied linguistics, in order to give them the opportunity to undertake research or find employment in written and oral communication in the broad sense of the term (terminology, dictionary skills, textual readability, etc) where they will be regarded as 'language specialists'. Three focuses are available:
- the research focus aims to give students an introduction to scientific research and build on the student's linguistic knowledge in at least one modern language as well as helping them develop specific knowledge of one or several fields of applied linguistics (learning foreign languages, psycholinguistics, computational linguistics, contrastive linguistics, etc.).
- the professional language in natural language processing aims to introduce students to the essential methods, technology and concepts related to natural language processing (processing intelligent texts, person-machine interfaces, automatic translation, documentary navigation, teaching materials, electronic dictionaries, etc.).
- the 'finalité spécialisée en linguistique appliquée à l’apprentissage des langues' aims to give students an introduction to the tools, methodology and concepts vital to language learning (linguistic policy, learning psychology, language-specific methodology).
Available Financial Aid: One grant per year is available to students from developing countries
