Content

This programme offers a linguistic perspective on real-world problems of language in use, with a strong emphasis on developing skills and knowledge that can be applied in a wide range of professional settings.

You will explore how language is used in a variety of social situations; for example, language use in everyday conversation, or in educational setting.

You will compare language variability - for example, bilingualism, accents, dialects - with social diversity such as gender, class, or ethnicity.

You will examine how knowledge and uses of language can impact people’s lives.
