This page will provide the key information for first semester students in the summer semester 2021 (MA Linguistics).
There will be a Freshman orientation for MA students on Wednesday, 7 April 2021, 11.15–12.45 by Professor Barbara Stiebels as video conference (URL: https://meet.uni-leipzig.de/b/sti-any-a6m).
Module recommendations for first semester students
We recommend the advanced modules Segmental phonology (04-046-2013), Morphology (04-046-2010) and Grammatical perspectives on cognition (04-046-2026). You may alternatively enrol for a module offered by another institute (e.g. a Linguistics module in the MA programs of the German/English/Romance/Slavic department). If you prefer the second option, you have to contact the module commissioner ("Modulbeauftragter") of the respective module and ask whether you can be admitted to the module (in terms of required background knowledge and in terms of vacancies); you should also ask for the technicalities of registration for the respective module. If you are admitted to the module, you have to get the consent of the head of the intitute's examination committee (see form). Note that a direct module registration via Tool is not possible. Often, the institutes will provide registration forms; you have to send the registration form (with the signatures of the teachers/lecturers of the module) to the Study Office. If you are interested in the special module Research internship (04-046-2034), you should register for it in a later semester.

You are automatically admitted to the modules of our MA Linguistics. After the registration data are migrated on 12 April 2021 from TOOL to AlmaWeb.
