Program description

Do you wonder how our speech and language evolved and why we evolved from caves? Language and Linguistics introduces you to evolution of human language. If you enjoy the way we speak in all its formats this programme will be of interest. Combine this with Philosophy which introduces you to our human behaviour. There are plenty of wide ranging careers to choose from including many utilising language skills fully.

Language & Linguistics will introduce you to, among other things, how human language and speech may have evolved, the complex functions and structures of language in its role as a bridge between sound and meaning. You will study the ways in which we acquire languages as children and adults, the ways in which languages vary and the mechanisms by which they change over time.

Philosophers attempt to answer questions such as: What is knowledge? What is the nature of truth? Could the existence of God be proved? Why should we act morally? Philosophy is as much the study of what constitutes a ‘good’ or ‘valid’ argument as it is the application of thought to specific problems.
