Department of Linguistics

The M.A. program in General Linguistics was established in 1985 in Dr. Ali Shariati Faculty of Letters and Humanities at Ferdowsi University of Mashhad to provide all candidates with a common set of core courses that offer them a well-rounded preparation for a professional terminal degree or for subsequent specialization at the doctorate level. The program's aim is to instruct students in the major areas of linguistic theories and the methods of linguistic analysis.

Founded in 1997, Master’s program in Teaching Persian Language to Non-Persian was designed to train students who will play an active role in theory and practice in such areas as teaching Persian as a second or foreign language, and developing curriculums and educational materials. Another aim of the program is to train Persian-language teachers. Students will acquire extensive knowledge of Persian-language education, psychology of teaching and applied linguistics and also improve their research abilities by refining their expertise in this field of study.

The PhD program started admitting students in 1998 in Linguistics with the aim to train professionals with close relations to a certain language and area by cultivating practical language abilities. The program is also planned to enhance students’ professional capabilities through critical analysis and also give them the opportunity to access international learning communities through research groups.

Major subjects covered in this program are: Morphology and Syntax, General Linguistics, Discourse Analysis and Pragmatics, Teaching Persian Language to Non-Persian Speakers, Phonetics and Phonology, Semantics. More
