Linguistics is the scientific study of language and, as such, has a central role to play in exploring what it means to be human. As a linguistics student here at Brighton you will have the opportunity to investigate some of the most complex and intriguing aspects of human cognitive and social life. You will acquire skills in language analysis and explore the nature of linguistic communication. You’ll learn about the relationship between language and the mind, and language and society and will explore how linguistics relates to other fields. Option modules in your second and final year provide opportunities to study aspects of linguistics in depth. You can also opt to study related subjects from across our humanities provision, including literature and media. The degree will equip you with valuable transferable skills as a critical thinker, independent researcher and constructive team member.
