Course summary

While the forensic linguist/scientist as supporter of police investigations has become increasingly popular, an understanding of language, the law and forensic methodologies can be used in many other areas such as immigration investigations and the identification of historical documents. In the first academic year, you are introduced to many of the key concepts and skills that are required throughout your degree. The three Understanding Language modules in particular provide you with the analytic building blocks for language study. You are also offered optional modules from the BA (Hons) Forensic Studies course (see page 126). The second academic year moves you beyond the concepts and tools learned in the first year as you begin to apply these to language and discourse within the world around you, to both historic and contemporary texts. You are able to choose from a range of modules from English Language, English Linguistics and Forensic Studies. In the final academic year, you are able to specialise if you wish to and develop your own research interests. This culminates in an extended piece of work, either a dissertation or an independent project.The optional sandwich year allows the student to explore a possible career, gain first experience, and come back to study with a clearer understanding of how to shape their final year in pursuit of the career of their choice. Each student will have support before, throughout, and after the placement, from selection and application to the reintegration into a new final year cohort after their return. There is a lot of flexibility in placement choice, and the responsibility of being accepted onto a placement lies with the student. Options to explore include: British Council (language teaching abroad), International and National Language Schools, Houses of Parliament, Stroke Association or similar charities, Council work, Schools, NHS, Marketing and PR, Courts.
