Course summary

On this Linguistics and Psychology joint honours degree, you will learn about behaviour from infancy to old age, and deal with the biological, social and individual factors that affect human psychology and language use.Studying linguistics will enable you to learn about, understand and interpret many aspects of human language. On this Linguistics and Psychology course, 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. Linguistics is the study of how language works and how and why language is used. Linguists look at not only how people learn, understand and speak language, but also at the way different people use language differently. 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.Psychology is the scientific study of how people behave, feel, think and learn. As a science and as a profession, Psychology makes a difference to people in the real world, by improving quality of life across a wide range of areas.In Psychology, you will study the mind, thought and behaviour, and you will learn about how to describe and explain how people live, think, socialize and develop. You will get the opportunity to find about things like: the factors that govern human psychological behaviour, how our environment influences our thoughts and feelings, how children’s minds develop and change as they grow older, and about research methods and advances in the field of psychology.‘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.
