Course summary

Intro

Our Language in Context MA is unique in offering students an engagement in interdisciplinary work crossing sociocultural and linguistic boundaries; as well as offering two distinct pathways to enable you to develop an advanced understanding of either sociocultural linguistics or pragmatics.

You will examine language use in a range of contexts, and explore various mechanisms of communication through a variety of analytical and theoretical frameworks. The interdisciplinary approach to language analysis enables an exploration of links to other disciplines, such as philosophy, cultural and political theory, and some aspects of psychology and cognitive sciences.

Learning about language from varied perspectives expands and enhances your skills base suitable both for a wide scope of potential careers and for doctoral research.
