MA Linguistics


The MA Linguistics is addressed only to international students. English skills (at least C1) are required, German skills are not required. German speaking students must enroll in the MA Linguistik.


The MA program in Linguistics has been open for international students since the winter term of 2018/19. The program is organized by the CCLS in close cooperation with the participating linguistics departments. International students can choose from five different profiles (General Linguistics, English Linguistics, Historical-Comparative Linguistics, Phonetics and Slavic Linguistics) that can be studied without a German certificate. Since the MA Linguistics is a new program, this website is still being updated and further information will be supplied here soon.

Please note that the application procedure differs for international students. For more information visit the website for international applications of the Faculty of Arts and Humanities.

New students are advised to participate in the orientation session for MA students: 19 September, 1 p.m., at the Institute of Linguistics – General Linguistics, Meister-Ekkehart-Str. 7, 2nd floor, seminar room on the left.
