The Faculty of Linguistics offers graduate study through its taught Master’s courses (one-year M.St. and two-year M.Phil.) and its doctoral research degree (D.Phil.)
The M.Phil. and M.St. are taught courses offering a range of options for graduates seeking a higher academic qualification in language studies and wishing to specialise in General Linguistics (including Phonetics but not Applied Linguistics), in Historical and Comparative Philology, or in the linguistics of a specific language. All candidates must work in Oxford under supervision for at least one year for the M.St., and two years for the M.Phil. Most of the teaching is done through lectures, seminars, and individual tutorials.
The D.Phil. is an advanced research degree for qualified students who are ready to begin thesis work in General Linguistics (including Phonetics but not Applied Linguistics), in Historical and Comparative Philology and Linguistics, or in the linguistics of a specific language. Though the degree does not have a coursework requirement, D.Phil. candidates are encouraged to attend lectures and seminars in the Faculty.
