Course content

Brighton's English and linguistics postgraduate programmes are designed for students with, for example, previous undergraduate level study or appropriate experience in areas such as linguistics, English language, English literature, philosophy, sociology, or other related areas such as politics, history, cultural theory, and teaching English as a foreign language. There are three complementary routes: MA in Linguistics; MA in English Language; and MRes (Master of Research) in Linguistics. The MA in Linguistics equips students with knowledge of critical theory in the area of theoretical linguistics and philosophy of language, more specifically the syntax/semantics interface, the semantics/pragmatics interface, and grammar.
