Course content

Are you interested in learning how the English language works? How it may be analysed and how you learn languages?

The MA in Applied Linguistics is a programme that allows you to develop expertise in specific areas of linguistics, such as corpus linguistics, cognitive linguistics, discourse analysis and/or language pedagogy. The programme combines a range of core modules and optional modules to ensure that you develop a solid foundation in the discipline area whilst also having the flexibility to pursue your own specific research interests.

This highly flexible programme is ideal for language professionals, or for those intending to become language professionals, in a range of possible careers.

We also offer a distance learning programme over 2.5 years. For more information see Applied Linguistics MA (Distance Learning).

If you are made an offer of a place to study and you do not meet the language requirement, you have the option to enrol on our English for Academic Purposes Presessional Course - if you successfully complete the course, you will be able to fulfil the language requirement without retaking a language qualification.
