Linguistics is an increasingly important subject, impacting on areas in psychology, philosophy, education and artificial intelligence. It has real-world applications in such diverse fields as human rights, computer-assisted language learning, and the study of institutional language in settings like doctor-patient interactions, interviewer-interviewee dialogues, and courtroom exchanges. This Linguistics course will explore a wide range of core topics in linguistics, mastering key concepts in phonetics, phonology, morphology, syntax, semantics and pragmatics, and also investigate specialist areas including: Multilingualism; Language and Gender; Language and the mind; Conversation and Social Interaction. Students can choose to study different kinds of linguistics from structural linguistics to applied and experimental linguistics. For those with a global outlook and are interested in human communication, and want to study for a degree with real-world practical value in a world-class department, this programme is ideal.
