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.

Program Description: The MRes in Speech, Language and Cognition is aimed at applicants whose interest in language spans more than one discipline. Building on a first degree in linguistics, speech sciences, psychology, cognitive science, or a cognate discipline, students plan their own course of study (with the guidance of an advisor), selecting from a range of courses in several different UCL departments. The degree is a stand-alone 12-month Masters, but is also excellent preparation for PhD research in a language-related field of study.
