Course summary

About the course

The MSt in Linguistics, Philology and Phonetics is a nine-month taught course offering a range of options for those seeking a graduate qualification in language studies and wishing to specialise in general linguistics (including phonetics but not applied linguistics), in historical and comparative linguistics, or in the linguistics of a specific language.

Supervision

The allocation of graduate supervision for this course is the responsibility of the Faculty of Linguistics, Philology & Phonetics and it is not always possible to accommodate the preferences of incoming graduate students to work with a particular member of staff. Under exceptional circumstances a supervisor may be found outside the Faculty of Linguistics, Philology and Phonetics.

Assessment
Research Preparation strand

If you choose to undertake this strand, you will produce a master’s thesis of up to 15,000 words.

Advanced Study strand

If you choose to undertake this strand, assessment will comprise three exams. One for the general linguistics paper and two other exams at the end of the year. Exams are three hours in length. Subject to approval by the Director of Graduate Studies, one or more exams can be replaced by written submissions, but the exam for the general linguistics paper is compulsory.

Option papers common to both strands

In addition to the assessment for the specific stand you have chosen, you will study for two option papers from either Option B, Option C, or Option D above.
