This joint honours degree explores how language works, how it’s structured, interpreted and used, alongside key philosophical questions and thinking. Studying linguistics will allow you to develop an understanding of human communication using approaches from the arts and sciences to equip you with a variety of skills. Compulsory and optional modules will allow you to explore topics such as language acquisition, syntax, language change and processing as well as phonetics – the study of how speech sounds are physically produced. In philosophy, you can explore fundamental questions about how we understand the world, through studying key concepts and topics such as argument construction, moral and political philosophy, the nature of knowledge and reality, and philosophy of language. You’ll also explore applied philosophy in topics such as bioethics, race, gender, and the philosophy of war and terrorism.
