You will undertake linguistic projects which involve collecting and analysing data and you will develop a thorough understanding of the relationship between language, society and culture; the role of language in the media and social media; health communications; language and education; language and the arts and language and the mind. Key benefits

- The chance to tailor module choices across five broad themes: media, arts, education, mind and society.
- Get involved in the numerous stimulating seminar series and events that we run throughout the year.
- Classes are small and welcoming, taught by approachable and supportive staff with international reputations for world-leading research in linguistics and communication.
- London is the perfect place for your studies - there are over 300 languages spoken in the city so if you want to look at language use in multilingual communities you really won’t find anywhere better!
