The two-year Master Programme in Sociolinguistics examines, from many different angles, the complex interconnection between language and society. It provides a critical understanding of both theory and method in the discipline, introducing both the latest groundbreaking ideas as well as providing a practical training in empirical research, qualitative and quantitative methods and fieldwork techniques. We take a deliberately interdisciplinary approach in the Master Programme, introducing topics essential for a broad understanding of language use in its social context, including, in addition to sociolinguistics itself, relevant aspects of, for example, psycholinguistics and second language acquisition.
Sociolinguistics is taught at the Center for the Study of Language and Society (CSLS ), an interdisciplinary research centre composed of the following Departments: English, German, Italian, French, Spanish and Slavic Linguistics. These Departments offer courses from which students can design a programme that both meets their own individual research interests and addresses their specific professional objectives. Depending on the Department, courses take place in German, English, French, Italian and Spanish.
