The Masters Degree in Theoretical and Experimental Linguistics offers a general and unifying view of Linguistics. Its aim is to provide students with the competencies required for the study of historical, theoretical and experimental Linguistics. The Master’s program includes core introductory courses about the most relevant topics of historical, theoretical and experimental linguistics, advanced elective courses in any of these three areas, and a Master’s final research project. Students will learn from world-class scientists of the UPV/EHU as well as different renowned international researchers invited every year to teach at our Research Seminary courses. Hence, our program allows students to specialize in the areas of Semantics and Pragmatics, Syntax and Morphology, Phonetics and Phonology, Typology, Historical and Comparative Linguistics, Psycholinguistics and Neurolinguistics. Due to its unifying character, it also promotes interdisciplinary research work in any combination of these areas from both a synchronic and a diachronic perspective.
Students who complete the Programme of Studies will be able to engage in the study of any language (with the added value that it offers the possibility of in-depth study of the Basque language). The Masters is fundamentally oriented towards research work leading to further doctoral studies in any area related to Linguistics. Our Master’s program graduates have enrolled in PhD programs on Computational Linguistics, Historical Linguistics, Theoretical Linguistics and Psycholinguistics at several renowned universities such as the Donders Center at Radboud University, University of Zurich, the Universidad Autónoma de Madrid, as well as in our own PhD program in Linguistics at the UPV/EHU.
Entry profile: Prospective students are expected to have basic knowledge of Linguistics, as provided by the Degrees in Philology, Modern and Classical Languages, Linguistics and Translation and Interpreting. Students with other degrees, such as Philosophy, Logic, Psychology or Education (esp. Foreign Language), that have shown an interest in the human language faculty during their studies are also eligible. Candidates that wish to be admitted to the Programme must include a brief application essay where they state their motivation for studying Linguistics.
