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 M.A. and Ph.D. in English Studies is an innovative program recently established by the English Department, Faculty of Liberal Arts, Thammasat. The program is designed to provide a high-quality and flexible South-East Asian international alternative for M.A. and Ph.D. English Studies. After studying our core courses, students in both the M.A. or Ph.D. program elect to follow a course of study that focuses on one of three main tracks, depending on their particular interest:
- Applied Linguistics
- Intercultural Communication
- Literary Studies

There are two plans for the M.A. Program: the Thesis Plan (2 and a half years), and the Non-Thesis Plan (2 years). M.A. students who wish to continue to the Ph.D. Program must choose the Thesis Plan, and at the end of the third semester will be required to pass a Ph.D. assessment exam. Those who are successful can start their Ph.D. in the fourth semester (which means as a holder of a Bachelor’s degree it takes you 5 and a half years to get a Ph.D., while in general it would take you up to 6-7 years to complete an M.A. and a Ph.D.). Students who have obtained an M.A. from other institutions can be admitted to our at Ph.D. Program (about 5 years to complete)
