Graduate program in Linguistics in the Netherlands
The graduate program in linguistics in the Netherlands has three main ingredients: LOT Winter and Summer Schools, specialised training programs such as EMLAR, local courses and extracurricular activities offered by the LOT institutes, as announced on our News page.
The aim of LOT is to create a scientific community in which this research can be optimally pursued, and to educate the next generation of researchers with an open mind toward new disciplinary and interdisciplinary developments, theoretical and methodological alternatives, and possible applications.
LOT was officially established in June 1994 by the Royal Netherlands Academy of Arts and Sciences. The LOT school series soon acquired an international reputation as a result of inviting well-known linguists to teach at the schools.
The research by the LOT institutes covers all major areas of linguistics, and exploits a wide range of methodological tools and theoretical frameworks.
