Course summary

Course overview

Communicating well within the professional environment helps build relationships, increase productivity, and boost morale. This course is therefore ideal for working professionals, while the web-based learning means you can study alongside research-active academic staff and fellow students.

We study workplace communication from an evidence-based, linguistic perspective. You will be relating theory to practice, bringing value and experience to your professional development goals.

You will:

  • learn about key ideas and concepts in applied linguistics
  • develop core analytical skills
  • be trained in research methods

Your learning will be based in real-world examples and datasets, including the huge variety of modes of communication that make up our workplace interactions, from face-to-face dialogue to remote conferencing and written communication.

You can study to a level which suits you, choosing from PG Certificate (60 credits), PG Diploma (120 credits) or MA (180 credits).

Most students complete this course in 2 years. Under some circumstances, you may be able to change your course duration. You will need to discuss this with your course director. Please note, if you are in receipt of a Student Finance England loan, a mid-course change may affect your payments.
