Course summary

About the course

The DPhil is an advanced research degree for qualified students who are ready to begin thesis work in the field of general linguistics (including phonetics but not applied linguistics), in historical and comparative philology and linguistics, or in the linguistics of a specific language.

The DPhil in Linguistics, Philology and Phonetics is an advanced research degree, awarded on the basis of a thesis and an oral examination. You are expected to submit your thesis three, or at most four, years from the date of admission.

You are encouraged to attend and to contribute to the wide range of research seminars, conferences and workshops organized by the faculty. You will also have access to specialist training courses offered by the Advanced Core Training in Linguistics programme (ACTL), Bodleian Library, Language Centre and IT services.

Linguistics at Oxford is an interdisciplinary subject, with most areas of general linguistics as well as Indo-European, Romance and Slavic historical and comparative linguistics being represented by one or several members of staff.

Assessment

For students coming from either Oxford's MSt research preparation or MPhil, there will be one internal viva voce (oral examination) known as confirmation. For all other students, there will be two internal vivas (transfer and confirmation). These vivas are with two faculty members and discuss a chapter of 10,000 words. You will be required to pass these vivas before proceeding.

Your thesis will be based on extensive original research and engagement with current scholarship. You will also defend you thesis orally in front of two faculty members.

Graduate destinations

Graduates follow career paths that include academia and higher education, research services, research and development, secondary and further education, industry and the civil service.
