The German Language and Linguistics Master's programme at Leiden University is a specialisation of the MA Modern Languages and offers in-depth knowledge of German linguistic theory and practice.

When you study German Language and Linguistics at Leiden University you will be encouraged you to explore your own ideas and research plans – whether your preferences are linguistic theory, fieldwork or psycholinguistic experiments. You will not only acquire a high level of fluency in German, but you will also gain skills that are highly valued in the job market, preparing you for a future career in academia or professions that require strong German communication skills, organisational abilities, and didactic and/or academic skills.

During this programme you will gain a broad and deep knowledge of the empirical, theoretical, and experimental approaches to linguistics. You will also learn to transfer your ideas into concrete research proposals with the support of experienced tutors, or contribute to the research conducted at the Leiden University Centre for Linguistics (LUCL).

The curriculum of the master’s programme in German Language and Linguistics allows you to combine courses from the programme with other master’s courses offered at the Faculty of Humanities.
