Course summary

The programme provides postgraduate level training in English language and linguistics. The programme is specifically designed to develop students' knowledge in the various areas of language and linguistics (e.g. syntax, semantics, language acquisition, discourse among others), and also to afford students the opportunity to focus the development of their research skills on and within their chosen sub-discipline. The programme develops students knowledge in the study of language and can hence lead to the following career options: PhD in Linguistics, Publishing, Teaching. Many of our past graduates have chosen this course as a first stepping stone towards a career in Speech and Langauge Therapy.

There are also other generic and transferable skills that the student will develop from studying a linguistics degree. They include: the ability to construct and manage an argument; working as a team to achieve common goals; the ability to recognise and solve problems; using initiative and working independently; self-management with the ability to carry out personal reflection; time management and organisation skills.
