O que eu aprenderei?

The DPhil is an advanced research degree for qualified students who are ready to begin thesis work in the field of general linguistics (including phonetics but not applied linguistics), in historical and comparative philology and linguistics, or in the linguistics of a specific language.

The DPhil in Linguistics, Philology and Phonetics is an advanced research degree, awarded on the basis of a thesis and an oral examination. The thesis will be based on extensive original research and engagement with current scholarship. You are expected to submit your thesis three, or at most four, years from the date of admission.

You will be supported by a supervisor or supervisors who will help you develop a programme of research and writing. You will also benefit from the advice and support of other members of the faculty and can draw on the expertise of scholars and colleagues throughout the faculty and University.

You are encouraged to attend and to contribute to the wide range of research seminars, conferences and workshops organized by the faculty. You will also have access to specialist training courses offered by the Advanced Core Training in Linguistics programme (ACTL), Bodleian Library, Language Centre and IT services.

Linguistics at Oxford is an interdisciplinary subject, with most areas of general linguistics as well as Indo-European, Romance and Slavic historical and comparative linguistics being represented by one or several members of staff.

Current research falls into seven main areas:

  • linguistic theory (morphology, syntax, semantics, pragmatics and their interfaces)
  • Indo-European comparative philology (especially Greek, Italic/Latin, Indo-Iranian, Anatolian, Celtic, Slavic and Tocharian)
  • phonetics and phonology (especially phonetics/phonology interface, speech perception, language comprehension)
  • Romance philology (Research Centre on Romance Linguistics, especially diachronic morphology, syntax of Italo-Romance and phonetics of French)
  • neurolinguistics/psycholinguistics
  • sociolinguistics (language variation and change, language and gender)
  • ancient grammatical thought in the Greco-Roman tradition.

Requisitos de admissão

Para estudantes internacionais

As a minimum, applicants should hold or be predicted to achieve the equivalent of the following UK qualifications: a master's degree in a relevant subject with a very good result or a result close to distinction level; and a first-class or strong upper second-class undergraduate degree with honours in a relevant subject. However, entrance is very competitive and most successful applicants have a first-class degree or the equivalent. Applicants are expected to have a background in linguistics comparable to Oxford's MPhil degree in General Linguistics and Comparative Philology. Under exceptional circumstances substantial professional experience may be considered a substitute. For applicants with a degree from the USA, the minimum GPA sought is 3.5 out of 4.0. Applicants need to have an IELTS score of 7.5 with a minimum of 7.0 per component; TOEFL iBT score of 110 with a minimum component score of 22 in listening, 24 in reading, 24 in writing and 25 in speaking.

Os requisitos para o IELTS podem variar de acordo com o curso que você escolher.
