Course summary

As the science of language, linguistics studies everything to do with language, including how it is structured, how it develops in children, the ways in which it reflects society and culture, how it defines individuals and groups, and how it changes over time. Our BA Linguistics and Language with International Experience offers you the opportunity to learn about the central ideas and concerns of contemporary linguistics at one of the world’s top research-intensive universities. You'll also have the opportunity to reach a high level of fluency in one language - French, German, Italian or Spanish - or upper-intermediate or advanced level in Japanese, depending on your level of entry, while practising allied skills such as translating, summary-writing, and delivering written and oral presentations. The third year is normally spent abroad at a partner institution to allow you to develop your language skills and your knowledge of the culture of the language-speaking area you are studying.You can also apply for a three-year version of the programme without a year abroad, and you will normally also be able to transfer to this version of the programme during your first or second year of study if you decide you do not wish to study outside of the UK.This programme is also available for part-time evening study over four years or six years.**Highlights**- You will have the opportunity to spend a year abroad at a partner institution.- You will be taught by experienced scholars with international research reputations, which will allow you to acquire mastery of your chosen language and a thorough knowledge of contemporary linguistic ideas.- Our Department of Applied Linguistics and Communication is the oldest applied linguistics department in the country, celebrating its 55th anniversary in 2020. We remain on the cutting edge of the field.- In the most recent Research Excellence Framework (REF), Modern Languages and Linguistics achieved 100% for a research environment conducive to producing research of the highest quality, while 73% of our research was recognised as world-leading or internationally excellent.- The School of Arts is an official partner of the Institute of Contemporary Arts (ICA) in London. Opportunities for students have included a year’s free membership of the ICA, private views, discounts on all talks and events, free members' screenings and £3 cinema tickets on Tuesdays, up to 25% off ICA Artists' Editions and a monthly e-newsletter.
