European Masters in Language and Speech

Attention: The program EMA-LST was closed on 30/10/2011. The University of Utrecht who coordinated this program could not continue it. Additionally the program had to be widely revised. Since 1/11/2011 no EMA certificates can be handed out. We very much regret this.

About the European Masters in Language and Speech
