Course content

The PhD in Applied Linguistics (by Thesis and Coursework) is ideal if you have professional experience and/or who have previously studied in the field of Applied Linguistics, and you want a PhD that broadens as well as deepens your knowledge of relevant research and research methodologies. Many of our students are professionals who are balancing PhD studies with full-time careers, and this contributes to the rich and stimulating academic environment.

We have recently revised the programme and made it more flexible. You will begin with four assessed modules taken over 12-24 months. We offer modules specific to the programme but you can also choose from additional modules offered by the department’s Masters programmes, on-campus or distance, as well modules from the Faculty’s Research Training Programme. After successfully completing these four modules, you will move to a sole focus on your research and thesis.

We provide a virtual (online) introduction/welcome session and two intensive residentials at Lancaster University during which time you will complete a portion of the coursework, participate in a graduate student conference, and engage in a range of professional and academic development activities. These are valuable opportunities to meet your tutors face-to-face and interact with other students.
