About

In addition to these, the English Language and Linguistics programme offered by The University of Winchester offers optional modules; these are designed to cover historical and topical areas, and current debates, so that you may apply and ground your learning to the world around you.

Optional modules include titles such as 'Varieties of English: Spread and Impact', 'Gender and Sexuality' and 'Evolution of English'. In the optional modules you will be applying the different skills, approaches and research methods gained from the compulsory modules.

After studying six modules, you will propose a dissertation topic, after approval and, under the direction of an expert supervisor, write a 20,000‐25,000 word dissertation on an agreed topic.

Careers

Students graduating at MA stand a better chance of entering into subject‐related careers (e.g. publishing, marketing, lexicography), managerial positions in business and/or the public sector. The MA in English Language and Linguistics is a general degree and will prepare students for work in any field in which making sense of large amounts of information, close analysis and precise use of language, designing projects, and writing reports is a core skill. Those students who are teachers, or propose to be teachers or academics will find the degree an essential stepping stone to career advancement.
