Program description

In the Master's in Linguistics of European Languages you specialise in the linguistics of one of the European languages, but you also add your own individual touch to the study programme.

The linguistic landscape of Europe is a fascinating one. On the one hand there is enormous diversity: with languages as diverse as Russian, Spanish and Swedish the linguistic differences seem to be immense. On the other hand, the long history of expansion and subsequent withdrawal of populations like the Romans, Celts, Ottomans and the Slavs have led to a mixture of recurrent linguistic properties across Europe or parts of Europe. Furthermore, due to its long colonial history many European languages are now world languages too, which adds a global dimension to the study of European languages and the way they interact with other languages. At the University of Amsterdam you get the opportunity to study the languages of Europe in both a broad and a narrow sense. You specialise in the linguistics of one of the European languages or language families, but you also add your own individual touch to the study programme. The language (groups) that you can choose from for your specialisation are: - Dutch - English - French - German - Italian - Scandinavian - Slavonic - Spanish You then add to this a second component, which can be either thematic or involve a second language.
