Students combine advanced study in historical and modern aspects of English language and English linguistics.

Applicants must include a 200-word statement on why they wish to take the MSc in English Language and Linguistics; a sample of student's own written work (approx. 2,000 words). This can be from a previous degree the applicant has completed. Applicants are required to submit material that is entirely their own original work, except where clearly indicated. We also require at least one academic reference.
Phonetics and phonology; sociolinguistics; lexicography, lexicology and semantics; discourse analysis and grammar; English philology; dialectology. Students can also take courses on offer in some MLitt programmes in the College of Arts, for example, Medieval and Renaissance Studies; Classics.
Assessment includes a portfolio of essays. Students work on a short dissertation (15,000 words).
