The programme is available to full-time (over 1 year) or part-time (over 2-4 years) students.
Applied linguistics identifies, investigates, and offers solutions to language-related real-life problems, such as improving how languages are taught or how multicultural workplaces can improve communication between staff.
This one-year full-time (or part-time) course has a particular focus on research methodology, exploring how language shapes human interaction.
By studying this course you will:
- understand how to employ a range of research approaches to language, from discourse analysis to corpus linguistics
- have the opportunity to investigate language and communication from an interdisciplinary angle
- develop a thorough grounding in language research and its practical applications
- use your knowledge of how languages are formed to solve real-life problems.
The course is excellent preparation for students who wish to continue their studies at PhD level.
