Course summary

Study any aspect of language, communication and discourse in our MPhil/PhD in Discourse Studies. The University of Warwick's Department of Applied Linguistics, ranked 3rd in The Times/Sunday Times Good University Guide 2022, allows you the freedom to research text and discourse in a variety of professional, academic and social contexts. Working under the expert guidance of a supervisor, PhD students design and pursue an individual research project shaped by their own personal, academic, or professional needs and interests. They participate in seminars and other activities in a diverse and vibrant research community, and disseminate their work through conference presentations and publications to both academic and non-academic audiences. PhD researchers are individually mentored by academic supervisors from the beginning of their journey. They also participate in weekly research seminars in Year One to develop their skills and understanding in relation to research issues and approaches, methods of data collection and analysis, and research ethics.
