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 an Aotearoa New Zealand context, this means understanding how English has developed over time, and how it continues to change as a marker of Kiwi identity, as well as understanding the relationship, both past and present, between English and te reo Māori.

UC is ranked 78th= in the world for Linguistics (QS World University Rankings by Subject, 2022).
