About

Language is present in all aspects of our daily lives and our capacity to use it makes human beings unique as a species. In the Linguistics programme of the University of Amsterdam, you will explore both the structure and acquisition of language as well as the diversity of language around the world. 

Overview

Understanding language

The Linguistics programme of the University of Amsterdam focuses on our uniquely human capacity to use language, something indispensable in our daily life. As a linguist you are interested in how language and speech are structured, how we acquire it, how it can be impaired, how it is represented in the brain, how it functions in society, how we deal with 2, 3, or 4 languages at the same time, and how it changes. All these questions are addressed in this broad Bachelor's programme in Linguistics.
