Preparotory year for Master in Linguistics [60.0] - LING1PM
The preparatory year provides students with some basic skills in linguistics to help them sucessfully follow the Master  of arts in Linguistics [120.0] .
The programme is composed mainly of introductory courses to linguistics to supplement students’ initial training. It focuses particularly on courses which help students consider language as a « global semiotic sign » and not only linguistic. Students must possess a certain number of essential concepts in order to understand how a language functions, both internally (units and basic structures, contemporary theoretical trends) and externally (links with other disciplines).
Depending on the nature of the course and the teaching methods, the evaluation will take different forms. Some courses will involve oral and/or written evaluations (held during one of the three exam sessions: January – June – August/September)), whilst the evaluation of seminars will involve more substantial student participation as well as assessment of individual course work. Evaluation methods will be explained at the beginning of each course.
Teaching methods are evaluated in accordance with the current University regulations (see General regulations concerning examinations). Students may also find additional information regarding the evaluation of courses in the course description.
