FYI: New MA Program in English Linguistics at Lille3


Author: Ilse Depraetere

Linguistic Field(s): General Linguistics

FYI Body: ONE OF THE CENTRAL CONCERNS OF THE TWO-YEAR MA PROGRAMME IN ENGLISH
LINGUISTICS AT LILLE 3 IS AT THE HEART OF WHAT LANGUAGE IS ALL ABOUT:
MEANING, AND HOW IT IS BROUGHT ABOUT. THE PROGRAMME IS NOT COMMITTED
TO ONE PARTICULAR THEORETICAL FRAMEWORK AND THE EMPHASIS IS ON
SOLID EMPIRICAL DESCRIPTION (E.G., VIA CORPUS ANALYSES) AND
A USAGE-BASED APPROACH. STUDENTS ACQUIRE A SOLID FOUNDATION FOR
LINGUISTIC ANALYSIS BUILT ON EXTENSIVE AND CAREFUL DATA ANALYSIS.
AT THE END OF THE MASTER’S PROGRAMME, STUDENTS ARE EQUIPPED WITH
SOUND METHODOLOGICAL SKILLS, A CAPACITY FOR PROBLEM SOLVING, AND THEY
HAVE LEARNT HOW TO DEVELOP AN ARGUMENT AND HOW TO PRESENT IT IN A
WRITTEN OR AN ORAL FORM.

THE MASTER IN ENGLISH LINGUISTICS IN LILLE 3 IS ONE OF THE FEW
PROGRAMMES IN FRANCE WHICH OFFER COURSES IN COGNITIVE LINGUISTICS
AND/OR CONSTRUCTION GRAMMAR.

A MORE DETAILED DESCRIPTION OF THE PROGRAMME, THE COURSE SCHEDULE,
INFORMATION ON REGISTRATION (ALSO FOR FOREIGN STUDENTS), AND FACULTY
