LINGUISTICS

Southeast Asia has been an important area historically, politically and linguistically. To promote cooperation with various nations in this area, a real understanding of the languages and cultures of the countries and various ethnic groups in this area is quite essential. The Research Institute for Language and Culture of Asia offers an M.A. Program in Linguistics (Southeast Asian Languages and Linguistics) to train people to be specialists in Southeast Asian languages and linguistics, both theoretical and applied.
