The Master’s in Linguistics specialisation in English Language and Linguistics at Leiden University offers a wide array of topics ranging from how language and people influence each other to what the various functions of language are. The programme covers theoretical, applied, historical and socio-historical linguistics, building on the current linguistic research being conducted at the Leiden University Centre for Linguistics (LUCL), one of the largest linguistics institutes in the Netherlands and home to some of continental Europe’s finest English scholars.
Courses are offered in phonology, morphology and syntax, as well as in historical sociolinguistics and World Englishes. Courses of a more applied nature include lexicography, translation studies and the language of letters.
