Sign Linguistics

Signs in different languages

Sign linguistics is taught at all levels. There is the Bachelor's programme of the same name,  in which a wide variety of aspects of sign languages is studied. The Master's programme General Linguistics, which is taught in English, offers a specialisation in sign linguistics. There is also a two year Research Master's in Linguistics, which is meant to prepare students for a PhD programme.

The sign linguists who teach on the programmes also do research. All of them have PhDs  and are senior members of the Amsterdam Center for Language and Communication.
