About this course

With a strong emphasis on developing skills and knowledge that can be applied in professional settings, this intensive programme draws on knowledge about language, how it works and how it affects real-life issues.

They were the first in the UK to offer a programme in applied linguistics, so you will benefit from a long-established tradition of teaching in this area, much of which is delivered by world-leading experts.

The programme offers a linguistic perspective on real-world problems of language in use, with relevance to a wide range of professional interests. You will explore how language is used in a variety of social settings, compare language variability with social diversity and examine how knowledge about language as it is actually used can impact on people’s lives.

Note that, unlike other programmes in Applied Linguistics, one topic that we do not concentrate on is teaching pedagogy.

Career opportunities:
This programme has been designed to help progress your career as a linguist in academia or as a language expert in a variety of industries such as artificial intelligence.
