Understanding Language: Its Diversity and Function

The MA in Linguistics at Aarhus University explores the various aspects of language through project-based research under expert supervision. Students in the Program learn to use qualitative, quantitative, and computational methods to examine language description and diversity, the role of language in communication and society, functionalist theories of language, language as a cognitive phenomenon, and experimental and computational approaches to the study of language. In addition to gaining specialized skills in linguistic analysis, students also gain general proficiency in statistics and programming.
