English Acquisition and Multilingualism - master
The programme is well suited for students who are interested in studying how English is acquired in first and second language settings, as well as how the English language is affected by multilingual situations. Students admitted to the programme will be closely integrated into the AcqVA Aurora Centre, which is an active and productive research group working on various aspects of multilingualism and multilingual language acquisition. The students will get the opportunity to carry out hands-on research with the members of the group. The programme provides a good foundation for work related to multilingualism in both the private and the public sector, and is well suited for students who want to pursue a career within research.
The Master comprises a course component of 60 ECTS and a thesis of 60 ECTS. The course work consists of five compulsory modules; two of these will run in the Autumn (first semester) and three will be offered in the Spring (second semester):
The 60 ECTS based on course work should be completed in the first year of study, while the second year (60 ECTS) should be dedicated to writing the thesis. While working on the Master's thesis, a seminar is offered to support the students' research projects. In the Autumn (third semester), the seminar involves linguistics majors from all languages, and in the Spring (fourth semester), there is a seminar for English linguistics and theoretical linguistics. Students will also get the opportunity to present their work in research seminars at the AcqVA Aurora Centre.
