The goal of the master’s program is to train highly-qualified employees able to complete linguistic evaluations on all kinds of discourse, including the linguistic evaluation of court records, at a high level using modern equipment. This includes the general evaluation of speech situations, identification of a personality from a speech recording, determining the authenticity of analogue and digital speech recordings, the discovery of the hidden (implicit) meaning of texts, evaluation of the psychological and emotional status of a discourse author, and so on. This program is based on an order from employers for specialists in this area of training.
