The two-year Research Master in Linguistics, specialization of the Humanities research master, trains you as a professional linguistic researcher, specialised in either Human Language Technology or in Forensic Linguistics. Both tracks are aimed at linguists who are looking for a solid training in linguistics, coupled with a challenging specialization in young research fields with a fundamental concern for current society. The programs for the two tracks partly overlap. All students take general courses in the field of humanities research and linguistics, both on theory and methodology.
Human Language Technology is a young and rapidly evolving research field that holds a unique position between linguistics and computer science. Forensic Linguistics/Language and the Law is a new and exciting field, which has both a narrow and a broad definition. In its more specific sense it denotes the use of linguistic evidence in the courtroom. During the programme, you will choose four courses from a list of available Master's courses. You will base your choice on your own interests and the specialization that you wish to pursue. The programme is taught in English.

specialisatie Forensic Linguistics
Forensic Linguistics is one of the specializations of the Linguistics program.
Forensic Linguistics/Language and the Law is a new and exciting field, which has both a narrow and a broad definition. In its more specific sense it denotes the use of linguistic evidence in the courtroom. In its broader sense it refers to all areas of overlap between language and the law, including the language used in legal or quasi-legal settings by participants including judges, lawyers, witnesses, police officers and interpreters.
As a graduate of this programme you will have acquired the theoretical background and practical casework experience to be able to analyse disputed texts, recognize a “language crime” such as bribery or threatening communication (nowadays often sent via social media), and identify participants in the police station or courtroom who are at a linguistic disadvantage, and therefore vulnerable to miscarriages of justice.
specialisatie Human Language Technology
Human Language Technology is one of the specializations of the Linguistics program.
Human Language Technology is a young and rapidly evolving research field that holds a unique position between linguistics and computer science. Nowadays, in linguistic research a firm background in language technology is extremely valuable. Linguists have to be able to process large datasets.
As a student of this specialization you will get acquainted with the essential large computational linguistic resources, learn programming in Python for linguistics and develop skills in Natural Langue Programming (NLP) and machine learning. Through this intensive research program, you will become a linguistic engineer in language technology.
The programme is offered by the Computational Lexicology and Terminology Lab (CLTL), an internationally acclaimed research group in computational linguistics. Students holding a BA in Linguistics, Computer Science or Artificial intelligence are encouraged to apply.

instruction modesThe Research Master's is an intensive research oriented programme. Due to its small scale you will work closely together with the professors. Most courses will be taught in tutorials, some as lectures. You will complete your two-year program by writing a Master's thesis on a research project that you will carry out yourself.
objectivesThe Research Master specialization Linguistics prepares you for a career as a researcher. We will train you in the skills required to pursue a PhD within academia, and guide you in the writing of a research proposal for a PhD project. You may also become a researcher outside the academic setting or embark on a career outside the field of research, for instance as an editor, a teacher or a language policy worker in education for a local or national government.
