SOCRATES Project "European Masters in Language and Speech", Utrecht University, The Netherlands

The study of spoken language communication and the development of applications ask for students that are educated and trained in both speech sciences and natural language processing. The paper describes the model, structure, procedures and contents of a European Masters in Language and Speech that opens the possibility to realise this in a truly international way. The implementations at the eleven universities where the scheme will start in 1999-2000 are described and show a rich variety of curricula all matching the same qualifications.
