The MLitt English Language and Linguistics gives you an excellent opportunity to study the complex workings of language and explore its central role in society. With the guidance of expert staff, you’ll explore how language works, how people use it, what people use it for, where it came from and how it changes.
You’ll learn to carry out independent research and engage with other researchers by writing, debating and delivering oral and written presentations.
The course also provides a grounding in theories and methods that are essential for a range of careers. You’ll graduate with an expert knowledge of contemporary linguistic theories and their application in a wider cultural context – including both generative and cognitive approaches to linguistic description, as well as the contexts in which these theories operate.
You can exit after stage 1 with PgCert English Language and Linguistics.
You can exit after stage 2 with PgDip English Language and Linguistics.
