Course summary

Essex is a world leader in arts and humanities with Linguistics ranked among the top 150 departments on the planet according to the QS World University Rankings (2017). Our mission is to discover how language is organised, how it is acquired and how it is used for communication. You examine how children learn to talk and read and how we produce and understand words and sentences. You look at the causes and consequences of different types of language disorder in young children and adults and the best ways of teaching and learning a foreign language. You explore how age, sex, social background and regional origin affect the way we speak and how languages change over the course of time.
