You will explore how language is used in a variety of social settings, compare language variability with social diversity and examine how knowledge about language as it is actually used can impact on peoples lives.
We were the first in the UK to offer a programme in applied linguistics, so you will benefit from a long-established tradition of teaching in this area, much of which is delivered by world-leading experts.
The programme offers a linguistic perspective on real-world problems of language in use, with relevance to a wide range of professional interests.
Aims of the programme are to:
* educate language professionals with relevant critical and analytical skills;
* prepare students for employment in the various spheres of social life where linguistics knowledge and skills play a significant part;
* help students develop interest in working at the interface between linguistics and other disciplines;
* prepare students for further study (PhD) in Applied Linguistics.
This programme comprises two semesters of taught courses, followed by a dissertation. Four compulsory core courses provide a solid foundation in the fundamentals of Applied Linguistics, while the optional courses offer you the opportunity to explore your areas of interest.
A UK 2:1 honours degree (or equivalent from outside the UK) in a relevant discipline is normally required.
