Course summary

Language is a window on the human mind. Through the study of Linguistics, you will learn to understand and interpret what can be seen through it. You'll study syntax, semantics, phonetics, phonology and sociolinguistics under the guidance of world-leading academics. Our hands-on approach means you'll engage with theory and practical exploration from day one. You'll develop skills of analysis and problem solving through the scientific study of language, the very essence of what makes us human.
