In this programme you will have the option to study language from a theoretical perspective or to focus on the more practical aspects, such as translation or text analysis.

The Leiden University Centre for Linguistics is unparalled in the variety of languages taught and studied, ranging from languages such as English, French and Italian, to African languages, Native American languages and Indonesian. In addition, Leiden offers a wide range of theoretical approaches and perspectives in how language is studied. Within the specialisations you will have the opportunity to create your own master's programme, reflecting your specific fields of interest. Leiden linguists generally are in demand for their communicative and practical skills, such as their command of a specific language, their knowledge and skills in translating, and their editorial talents.
