Course summary

Studying linguistics will enable you to learn about, understand and interpret many aspects of human language. On this Linguistics and Modern Languages joint honours degree, you will study the ‘science’ behind language, including possible sounds used in speech and their combination (phonetics, phonology), how words are built up morphology), what distinguishes sentences from just strings of words (syntax), meaning (semantics and pragmatics), the effect that society, culture and norms have upon language use (sociolinguistics) and how languages change over time. You will also study the acquisition and use of language. On this Linguistics and Modern Languages course you will also develop advanced skills in a modern language, and specialised insights into the culture, society and history that go with it.Linguistics is the study of how language works and how and why language is used. Linguists look at how people learn, understand and speak language. Linguistics has a theoretical dimension but also an applied dimension – such as language technology, language policy and language in education. You will also have the opportunity to learn about the ways in which different languages are different or similar in terms of their grammar, how society and language go hand-in-hand, and the functions and status that different languages have across the world.Studying one or more modern languages gives you the practical skills of learning a language, while also letting you explore the cultural, historical and social aspects of speakers of different languages worldwide. In addition to the language learning that takes place in the classroom, there are lots of exciting opportunities for you to boost your language skills and increase your cultural awareness thanks to extra-curricular activities.‘Placement Year’ and 'International Experience Year’ options are available for this course. You will have the opportunity to fully consider these options when you have started your course at Bangor and can make an application for a transfer onto such a pathway at the appropriate time. You can find more information about these options on our website and if you have any questions, please get in touch.If you don’t have the required qualifications for this degree-level course or are looking to re-enter education after time away from study, then a Foundation Year Programme might be the right choice for you. Please see English Language and English Literature (with Foundation Year) QQCF or Modern Languages with Foundation Year (R808).
