Course summary

Programme description

Joining the world-leading Centre for Language Evolution (CLE), you will investigate the origins and evolution of human language, tackling questions such as: What is it that makes us human? How did our brains evolve? What are the origins of human language?

The CLE is at the cutting edge of research in this area and one of the world’s biggest research groups working on language evolution.

You will have the opportunity to become involved with the unit’s research effort, and to make your own contribution to this dynamic field through your dissertation.

The programme focuses on a treatment of language as a dynamic evolving system, bringing together origins, acquisition and change.

It provides a broad introduction to the field of language evolution and can form the basis for further (typically PhD) study for those wishing to continue their research.

Career opportunities

Recent graduates have gone on to roles in teaching (following further training), journalism and translation services for companies such as: Pearson Education; BPD Training; ITWeb.
