Year 2

Year 2 consists of:

In the fold-outs below you will find an overview of all the compulsory courses in year 2. Refer to the Course Planner for an overview of the compulsory courses that are part of the Linguistics programme. Are you planning to do an internship in your third year or would you like to study abroad for a while? In that case it is best to start planning in your second year. 

Did you start before 2023? Then check the Linguistics Education and Examination Regulations to see which courses you will have to take.

Register in time!

You must register for both the specialisation and the courses. Some courses in the specialisations have limited space and priority rules apply, which means that there is a shorter course registration period. So carefully check what the registration deadline is and register in time!

Period 1, 2, 3 and 4: Specialisation

A specialisation is a selection of 4 related courses within one area of Linguistics. The programme offers 3 specialisations:

  • Taal en samenleving (taught in Dutch)
  • Language and Cognition
  • Language and Computation

If you wish to add courses from another specialisation to your programme, you may do so as electives.

Period 1 and 3: Methodology courses (MO)

In period 1 and 3, in addition to a specialisation course, you take on the methodology courses Methods and Statistics and Phonology and Fieldwork to broaden your methodological and theoretical repertoire by studying and applying various methods and concepts.

Period 2 and 4: Elective courses

You will take your first 15 EC in elective courses (of the 60 EC you will have to complete before the end of your programme). As electives (your optional course profile), you choose components with a total study load of 60 EC. You can start with a minor, do an internship, go abroad or choose from a broad range of available courses. Make sure to check each course's entry requirements.
