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 Bachelor's programme in Linguistics, you will explore both the structure and acquisition of language as well as the diversity of language around the world.
This year, you won’t be able to attend any busy on-campus events with lots of people. But our online Open House is the perfect way to get to know UvA study programmes and university life from the comfort of your own home.
Every study programme has an Open House page with videos, FAQs and live events. On the main Open House website you can discover all our programmes,explore the city and campus, and get inspired during our theme weeks.
Linguistics 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 we language, 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 of these questions are addressed in this broad Bachelor's programme in Linguistics.
