Linguistics

This course will give you the opportunity to pursue research in the field of linguistics. You'll explore a broad selection of degree topics which align with the specialist areas in which our academic team publish research. Award degrees are available and you may wish to carry out your research in areas which includes: Clinical Linguistics, Media Discourse, Pragmatics and Sociolinguistics. Our Linguistic course has a proud record of excellence in research. Colleagues are leading authorities within their individual research specialisms. The degree focuses on both independent research and aims to develop your knowledge of key research skills and practices. It's also split into modules which are worth a number of credit points and are separately taught and assessed. However, the majority of the marks awarded for this course are for the dissertation and for this element of the course you'll have an individual supervisor allocated to you. You'll organise tutorials with your supervisor and they will advise you on the best practices to carry out your dissertation as well as encourage you to publish your work and to use it at presentations at conferences. This course provides an excellent foundation to then pursue a PhD, and it also gives you the freedom and support to shape your own work in the area of Linguistics. You'll also be able to add a variety of skills to your CV such as research skills which will help you to stand out within the graduate employment market. This course does not currently offer placements however students benefit from extensive contacts in the field of linguistics offered by our academic team. Some of the contacts include experts in the fields of clinical linguistics, social linguistics and languages. Applicants with a good UK honours degree ( minimum 2:2) degree within a relevant subject will be considered for this course. Candidates with non-standard entry qualifications will be considered on an individual basis.
