Applied Linguistics

The course invites students and professionals to work on topics that reflect the multidisciplinary nature of the field of applied linguistics which goes beyond the aspect of classroom-based language learning and teaching, and may include contemporary approaches such corpus-driven studies on testing or material compilation, or issues related to sociocultural adaptation and social cohesion in a migration context, to name but a few. The aim is to truly reflect the role language as a communicative tool plays in people's everyday life, and the challenges related to it. The professional doctorate introduces students to a range of dynamic and challenging concepts and methods with which to reflect critically and constructively on their current experience and context.
