Course summary

Understand and investigate the building blocks of language through linguistics.

Our course provides a detailed foundation in how language works in terms of speech sounds, grammar, meaning and social aspects. You'll then deepen your knowledge and skills in linguistic specialisms that you choose, by engaging with the theories and techniques of current linguistic research. You'll be able to apply your skills and knowledge to linguistic data, and have practical training in techniques used in linguistic analysis.

With world-class tutors you'll gain knowledge, and you'll be introduced to key research questions and methodologies. You'll also be able to perform original research in linguistics.

This programme is ideal for those with an interest in language who have not previously studied linguistics in depth.

Careers and skills

Effective communication, critical thinking and project management skills are central to most careers. The study of linguistics at York equips you with these skills and others, which translate readily into any work context.

Our graduates have an excellent record of pursuing fulfilling paths after graduation. Their work spans advertising, teaching English as a foreign language, IT, accountancy, broadcasting, clinical and forensic linguistics, retail management, and other careers.

Apart from your knowledge of linguistics, you will leave with the confidence and skills that come from successfully completing a demanding course and participating fully in university life.
