Master in Linguistics

The economic, social and political conditions in the Colombian Coffee Region create a perfect space of reflection from different fields of social sciences. One of the manifestations that identify the region is their linguistic expressions which, with the above conditions, form a way of being in the context and communicate within it, structuring a symbolic world with its own specific language.

The MS program in Linguistics with an emphasis in Language and Society, intends to impact the social, linguistic and educational aspects by training linguists at an advanced level to describe, analyze and explain that linguistic, cultural and education characterization in the region; and undertake further research projects aimed at a better understanding of the regional idiosyncrasies expressed in their everyday behavior. This knowledge is expected to be derived from research projects related to the man and his region and to improve the quality of life and education at all levels.

The most important claim of the academic program is to train researchers in the Science of Language, in a field as specific as social interaction influenced by the use of language and contextual factors.
