Course summary

About the course

The MPhil in Linguistics, Philology and Phonetics is a taught course offering a range of options for graduates seeking a higher academic qualification in language studies and wishing to specialise in general linguistics (including phonetics but not applied linguistics), in historical and comparative linguistics, or in the linguistics of a specific language.

After the MPhil, students who are readmitted to continue as confirmed DPhil students may submit a DPhil thesis for examination after one, or more typically, two further years of work, and the MPhil thesis may be revised and included as part of the DPhil thesis. In this way, a pathway to the DPhil in little more than three years can be offered.

Assessment

The compulsory paper in linguistic theory will be examined at the end of the first year. Three other exams will take place at the end of the second year. Of these three other exams, one or more can be replaced by a written submission, subject to approval by the Director of Graduate Studies. Exams are three hours in length.

You will also write 25,000-word thesis.

Graduate destinations

Some MPhil students proceed to doctoral work at Oxford; others continue academic study at other institutions. Other career destinations include publishing, secondary and further education, finance, and IT.
