What I would highlight The Master in theoretical and applied linguistics UPF is a program that allows to acquire in one year the knowledge of the foundations of linguistics. A year is short to treat all fields as diverse discipline. This possible lack of time is supplied, on one hand, with the student's work (he is a demanding master) and the other with the high level of teachers and their proximity at all times with the students, which allows to take full match each subject. The UPF is very active in linguistics center and from the beginning the students have had the opportunity to participate in lectures, conferences and seminars. Between students and teachers dominated the international environment, with people of diverse origins and trajectories, which is very enriching academic and personal level. After a year, this master has allowed me to acquire the necessary basis to decide what are my interests and what steps should I take to work in the future.
