6 MA Programmes in Modern Languages 2024

    MA Programmes in Modern Languages

    A Master of Arts program offers students the chance at in-depth liberal arts study, culminating in rewarding research conclusions, graduation and (oftentimes) increased career opportunities. An MA usually requires two full-time years of study, and you must have completed your bachelor’s degree to be admitted.

    So, what is an MA in Modern Languages? In these programs, you will likely be studying multiple languages in similar regions. You may choose to study Western and European languages, Eastern languages, or even more specific regions than these. You may take courses in linguistics, literature and history throughout the ages, as historical shifts often greatly impact the linguistic history of the culture in question. You may also take specific courses in grammar and syntax to enrich your proficiency in specific languages.

    Because of the in-depth language courses, you may develop advanced speaking proficiency in several languages, useful in a variety of cultural contexts. You may also develop increased cultural competence and greatly enhance your critical thinking skills, which helps with everything from true comprehension to decision-making.

    The exact tuition for a Master of Arts is different depending on where you choose to go to school. Contact your advisor for detailed financial information.
