Master of Arts in Linguistics

Duration: 2 years (four semesters)
Eligibility: Any Bachelor’s degree 

Linguistics is the study of human languages, concerned with the nature of language and communication. It deals both with the study of particular languages and the search for general properties common to all languages or groups of languages. The study follows a scientific approach. It is also referred to as Linguistic Science. 

Linguistics includes explorations into the nature of language variations, that is, dialects, language change over time, how language is processed and stored in the brain, and how it is acquired by young children. The focus of Linguistics is about the structure, use and psychology of language in general rather than the ability to speak many languages.
