Course content

The overall aim of the programme is to provide students with a grounding in key linguistic concepts and models so that these can be applied in the analysis of a range of naturally occurring spoken and written data. Specifically, it aims to provide students with a solid foundation in the structure of the English language. The programme provides opportunities for the application of theoretical linguistic concepts and to develop expertise in at least two specific areas of Applied Linguistics. It also provides a basis in research skills and methods to enable students to undertake further research, whilst encouraging and promoting students’ learning, personal development and self-awareness. The programme develops the capacity for reflective, critical and independent thought and action in relation to their studies.
