Course summary

Course description

Our MA Linguistics master's course is a flexible programme that aims to explore the breadth and the depth of linguistics.

Aims

We aim to:

  • give you a grounding in breadth and depth in Linguistics, by exploring the central features of linguistic theory: its history, objectives, principal theoretical frameworks, methodologies, contested areas and uncontested results;
  • enable you to gain experience of excellence in teaching and learning at an advanced level, in an environment that is also home to world-leading research in Linguistics.

Teaching and learning

You will learn through a variety of teaching methods.

Core course units and other MA-specific course units are typically taught as seminars, in a small group, combining lectures with discussion. Many units also have practical tutorials that will help you prepare for individual research projects.

Directed Readings involve individual or small group meetings during which pre-set readings on a particular topic are discussed.

The enhanced Level 3 undergraduate course units combine lectures or seminars, depending on the aim of the course unit, with more optional tutorials.

The aim across all teaching forms is to create the opportunity for intensive scholarly work, with areas of focus determined by students and your individual interests, which can be investigated in considerable depth.

Career opportunities

Studying Linguistics will equip you with a range of sought-after transferable skills, including written and oral communication skills, computing skills, intercultural awareness and research methods.

This course will also develop skills that will be useful in undertaking postgraduate research.

Career destinations for our graduates include language teaching, language policy, speech and language therapy, publishing and communications.
