Other MA/PhD Courses
Every MA/PhD student is required to register for Guided Reading (868) for one year during his/her studies; for MA students, this should usually be their 2nd year. Students registered to Guided Reading must attend the Linguistics Colloquium on Tuesday 14:00-15:30 regularly throughout the year; all other MA/PhD students (as well as interested BA students) are also encouraged to attend the colloquium, which provides you with a unique opportunity to hear about a variety of active research topics presented by guests from Israel and from abroad. The colloquium program is published during the semester in our Events calendar; you can also subscribe to be notified of upcoming lectures through our Telegram channel (@biu_ling_news).
Two courses, 922 and 987, are required for all new students in the Linguistics in Clinical Research (LCR) program. Other students whose BA is not in linguistics are also usually required to take these courses. MA students taking these courses are also required to take the 9870+5910 courses.
