Norwegian Graduate Researcher School in Linguistics and Philology
The main aim of the graduate training school in linguistics and philology is to provide young researchers with a broad training in theories and research methods in linguistics and philology by offering a high quality, structured course programme that complements and deepens the training courses offered locally by each of the individual participating institutions.
The Norwegian situation in the field is such that expertise is often fragmented and isolated at the local level. Bringing in experts from multiple fields, the national researcher school can offer training that varies in breadth and depth of scale, thus ensuring both a broader understanding of linguistics and philology as research fields, as well as in-depth knowledge of more specific sub-disciplines within these fields.
This also allows for the development of the kind of interdisciplinary competencies that are sought after in both society and academia today. Furthermore, the school will provide training that develops generic and transferable skills to ensure that students are able to meet the demands of an increasingly demanding and diverse international workplace, both within and outside of academia.
