Program description

Proficiency in linguistics can give you the competitive edge in the global jobs market.

If you are interested in the way in which we communicate and how it can influence people, studying linguistics will help you unravel how language is inextricably linked to who we are.

Linguistics is devoted to the scientific study of natural language and concerned with how languages evolve, are structured and what they have in common. It also studies how languages are acquired and used.

Our programme enables you to develop a sound knowledge of both theoretical and applied perspectives and places emphasis on English, with examples from other languages where appropriate. The core elements of the course teach you about sentence structure (Syntax), meaning (Semantics and Pragmatics), Forensic Linguistics and Phonetics and Phonology. You will also learn about language use and variation in different social contexts, the media, and intercultural settings.

Communicating effectively, critical thinking and developing rigorous analytical skills are valuable assets in the job market and are transferable to various professions.

Japanese:
Japanese is spoken by about 125 million people and the number of UK graduates who can communicate in Japanese and write Japanese scripts is limited, so learning the language will give you a competitive edge.
Admissions at Beginners level only.
