Course description

The "International Master in Sociolinguistics and Multilingualism" program delves into the scientific and social discourse surrounding European multilingualism at local, national, and EU-wide levels. It bridges the gap between languages and societies, aiming to cultivate a new generation of sociolinguists. These experts will gain both scientific and practical insights into the concurrent use of multiple languages in Europe. They will also understand the social dynamics and the cultural, political, and socio-economic impacts of multilingualism across the continent. The program emphasizes a fresh perspective on multilingualism, particularly focusing on European contexts, with examples from the Nordic and Baltic countries. Research centers on Europe's diverse and evolving linguistic landscape, marked by a growing number of multilingual speakers. Students enhance their language skills in widely spoken languages like English and German, as well as less common ones such as Lithuanian and Estonian. This international exposure allows them to experience their own multilingualism firsthand. By connecting language and society, the program prepares students to navigate and influence the multilingual dynamics of Europe. The goal is to equip them with the knowledge and skills needed to address the complexities of multilingualism in various social contexts.
