Master programme General Linguistics: Grammar Theory and Cognitive Linguistics

Contents and focus of the degree programme:

The close interdependence of cognitive subdomains and grammar theory of the master's programme on one hand guarantees that graduates with a focus on psycho- and patholinguistic questions distinguish themselves through detailed knowledge in grammar theory from purely job-oriented courses in these fields since they can bring the theoretical dimension of language analysis into the practical implementation at any time. On the other hand grammar theory is not only to be taught in a system-immanent framework but also in close connection with research on language learning, its anomalies, linguistic pathologies, language and cognition as well as the neurological rooting of language. Graduates will be able to carry out independent analyses of natural languages with regard to their structure, learning or possible disorders.
