The Leiden University Centre for Linguistics (LUCL) is an institute with a long-standing international reputation for excellence.
Our two-year research master's capitalises on this expertise. Choose from the largest selection of languages offered in Continental Europe and an exceptional range of linguistic approaches including comparative, historical, descriptive, theoretical, experimental and formal. Explore sub-fields including phonetics, phonology, morphology, semantics, syntax, discourse, or pragmatics.
Small classes ensure you have plenty of direct contact with your lecturers and a high-level of guidance and support throughout your studies.
An important aspect of this programme is developing your ability to conduct original and innovative research. Join international peers at conferences, workshops and lecture series, all of which will help you forge an outstanding start to your career.
