Course content

Understand and investigate the building blocks of language through linguistics.

Our course provides a detailed foundation in how language works in terms of speech sounds, grammar, meaning and social aspects. You'll then deepen your knowledge and skills in linguistic specialisms that you choose, by engaging with the theories and techniques of current linguistic research. You'll be able to apply your skills and knowledge to linguistic data, and have practical training in techniques used in linguistic analysis.

With world-class tutors you'll gain knowledge, and you'll be introduced to key research questions and methodologies. You'll also be able to perform original research in linguistics.

This programme is ideal for those with an interest in language who have not previously studied linguistics in depth.
