Course content

The MA in Applied Linguistics incorporates three broad areas of study: research methodology; language description; and using Applied Linguistics to achieve a better understanding of a range of language-related issues, such as language acquisition and teaching, social interaction (including workplace and intercultural communication), critical discourse analysis and corpus analysis.

Throughout the course you will improve your research skills by being given specific training in research methodology, planning your own work and being involved in ongoing research projects led by various members of staff. You will have the opportunity to either specialise in a particular area of applied linguistics, such as discourse analysis and social interaction, or acquire a good working knowledge of various subdisciplines within applied linguistics and thus take advantage of the wide-ranging expertise in applied linguistics by the staff in the Centre for Language and Communication Research. Furthermore, you will learn how to use specific software packages that can aid research in the areas of applied linguistics you are most interested in.
