LINGUISTICS AT THE UNIVERSITY OF OSLO 

 

The University of Oslo (UiO), Norway’s oldest university and one of its largest, with the highest number of language subjects and students in language and linguistics, is now accepting international applications for its Master’s programme in Linguistics. 

The two-year master’s programme in linguistics at the University of Oslo specializes in general linguistics, covering a variety of theoretical orientations, and including foci on typology, theoretical syntax, formal semantics and pragmatics, experimental phonetics and phonology, language contact and language change (historical linguistics). 

Methodologically, it incorporates a range of different approaches, including fieldwork and elicitation techniques, language documentation, linguistic anthropology, psycholinguistic experimentation, and corpus linguistics. The department has also recently established a research group on ‘super linguistics’, the application of linguistic methodology to objects of study beyond natural language (including gestures, emoji and dance). Regional foci of research within the department include the Pacific region, the Indian subcontinent, Ethiopia, the languages of Scandinavia, and languages of North America; students are particularly encouraged to carry out projects that combine theoretical questions with empirical data, as well as projects that involve the theoretical analysis of lesser-described languages. 

The master’s programme in linguistics is hosted at the University of Oslo’s Department of Linguistics and Scandinavian Studies, which is host to two state-of-the-art labs, the Text Laboratory2,  which hosts corpora and databases, and the Socio-Cognitive Laboratory2, with a video studio, an EEG room, and an eyetracking room.
