Course summary

Overview

Lancaster’s Postgraduate Certificate in Corpus Linguistics (Distance) is a one-year online programme, whose main aim is to equip students with core skills that will allow them to analyse large amounts of linguistic data (corpora) using cutting-edge computational technology. Students will also learn about the structure of the English language. Lancaster University, with a specialised corpus research centre - The ESRC Centre for Corpus Approaches to Social Science, CASS - is one of the world leaders in corpus linguistics. We build corpora such as the British National Corpus 2014 and the Trinity Lancaster Corpus, and develop innovative corpus tools such as #LancsBox, Lancaster Stats Tools online and CQPweb. In 2015, Lancaster University was awarded the Queen’s Anniversary Prize for innovative corpus linguistic research.

Course structure

During your studies, you will learn from experts in the field and will be given access to a wealth of corpus resources. You will be able to acquire core skills in corpus linguistics and data analysis, which will help you grow professionally. After completing the course, you will have the option to continue onto the MA in Corpus linguistics by taking specialisation courses and writing a dissertation.
