MPhil in Linguistics: Italian Pathway

For students interested in studying Italian linguistics at Masters level, the Faculty currently offers a one-year postgraduate MPhil in Theoretical and Applied Linguistics with the option to pursue an Italian Pathway.

To fulfil a pathway, a student must write the MPhil thesis and at least two of the essays on a topic which is clearly within the language area chosen. The choice of courses attended in Michaelmas and Lent Terms will reflect that pathway.

The Italian pathway within the MPhil in Linguistics is therefore ideally suited for students wishing to gain a broad grounding in Italian linguistics and/or an in-depth introduction to specific areas of interest, as well as offering the possibility to combine the study of Italian linguistics with that of other Romance languages.

Most of the following Lent Term research seminars will be available in any given year (a minimum of 2 students is required for the seminar to run):

Please see the Faculty pages on the MPhil in Theoretical and Applied Linguistics for more information.
