Overview

This 180-point master’s degree is an advanced programme offering specialised courses in linguistic analysis and a significant research component.

Master of Linguistics (MLing) students will analyse the relationship between a language and its 'social life'. In a New Zealand context, this means understanding how English has developed over time, and how it continues to change as a marker of NZ identity, as well as understanding the relationship, both past and present, between English and Te Reo Māori.
