Applied Linguistics is an increasingly relevant and influential discipline. This programme, the first of its kind at undergraduate level, will equip students to conduct language analysis in diverse critical contexts including health care communication, human-machine intelligence, educational reform, language-related policy making, forensic analysis, diagnosing and managing communication disorders, social media communication, multilingual communities, and so on. We guarantee that you will be made a conditional offer for a course at Swansea University. Subject requirements will apply. Please come along to our next Open Day or get in touch for further information.
The degree will look at ways of analysing language knowledge and language use across a wide variety of contexts, and will necessarily make connections with other disciplinary areas of study in the social sciences. Topics covered will typically include: Language sounds and structure Language in the mind: processing and production Myths and truths about language(s) Child language and literacy Sociolinguistics (language, identities and communities) Discourse analysis (language and context) Software tools for applied linguistics Working with practitioners (health, law, education, technology) Psycholinguistics of language acquisition and attrition Atypical speech and language (communication disorders) Forensic linguistics (language and law) Language policy and planning Language in media A research project (dissertation)
