Course summary

About This Course

This course is for students with an undergraduate degree in any subject who want a qualification in linguistics. Students also write a research dissertation on a topic of their own choice. To help them achieve this, the programme has a compulsory module on Research Training which includes training in specific linguistic research and general social science research. This is complemented by research and transferable skills training from the University’s Graduate Training Programme. Students who have a BA in Linguistics may be exempt from compulsory modules which they have already covered as part of their first degree, or may prefer to follow one of the other MA courses offered by the School.

Careers

An MA in Linguistics will give you a detailed understanding of how language works and the ability to conduct research at various levels of linguistic analysis. Graduates find career opportunities in communications, teaching, publishing, research. The transferable skills acquired through this programme are beneficial in a range of other careers, including advertising, journalism, consulting etc. After successful completion of the MA in Linguistics, you may also decide to pursue an academic career in Linguistics, by applying for a place on the PhD in Linguistics.
