This course lets you explore language from different perspectives. When you join us, we will focus on helping you develop your academic skills. You will also learn linguistic analysis and explore debates on language use and the historical development of language. In your first year you will also be able to select an optional module that interests you. Study the basics of British Sign Language, or choose to explore multilingualism. As you progress through your degree you will explore more varied and complex linguistic theories. You can use our specialist linguistics lab to analyse language data and apply your theoretical knowledge to everyday examples of language. You can choose the topics you want to study and specialise in an area of linguistic study you are interested in. This could include an exploration of:
- Language, gender and sexuality
- Forensic linguistics
- Speech and language pathology.
- Your learning will focus on applying your theoretical knowledge to data you have gathered. This will help you explain how how linguistics applies to everyday situations.
