Linguistics is the study of how language works – how it is structured, used and understood. This degree allows you to study linguistics in the context of the English language, so you can develop a deep understanding of the way humans communicate with each other. Core modules will introduce you to the history, structure and use of the English language and give you a good grounding in areas such as phonetics, syntax and conducting language research. But you’ll also choose from a wide range of optional modules covering subjects such as language acquisition, psycholinguistics, sociolinguistics and discourse analysis. You’ll study language in its spoken and written forms – you’ll engage with texts, but also undertake fieldwork and data analysis, gaining a wide range of skills that stand out to employers.
