About

The Master’s Programme in Language Science with a Specialisation in Applied English Linguistics (120 credits) from Stockholm University is intended to develop an understanding of how knowledge about language in general, and specifically English, can be applied in a variety of contexts such as professional communication, teaching, and translation.

Overview

The orientation is towards the use of English as a world language of business and study in the multimodal environment of the present century. 

Key Features 

  • The Language Science with a Specialisation in Applied English Linguistics programme at Stockholm University aims to extend and develop students’ knowledge in their chosen field of study, as well as to strengthen their inter-disciplinary knowledge of scientific theory, ethics and research methodology. 
  • Teaching consists of required courses that are common to the whole programme, required courses in the applied English linguistics, and optional courses within English and from a pool of courses offered by departments from the Faculty of Humanities.

Programme Structure

  • The programme-wide required courses provide an introduction to scientific method and to languages in use in general, and also training in writing academic texts in English. 
  • The specialised Applied English Linguistics courses form a broad survey of key areas of English in use:  second language acquisition (how languages are learnt), discourse analysis (how texts are structured and used), language for specific purposes (how language and discourse varies according to functional domain, and how we can provide training in these variants) and research methods (how we can investigate the uses of language).
