Course summary

In this course you understand how language is at the heart of human life and its study is crucial to our understanding of ourselves as members of society, as individuals and as a species.

If you are interested in understanding how language works and is applied to different situations, then this course will appeal to you. You will analyse language, its use in different social contexts and settings, online and offline, how it is acquired and used by children and adults, how it is taught, its role in politics and the increasingly globalised world. Our diverse and interdisciplinary portfolio of modules will enable you to explore theories of language in the contemporary world and learn how to apply this knowledge to your future career. We offer a friendly and supportive environment in which you will be able to design a course geared towards your own interests and career objectives.
