The School of English at Nottingham has long been at the forefront of linguistic research on professional communication, with a focus on practical applications. We have a strong track record in providing evidence-based training in this area, through workshops and online courses delivered by our Linguistic Profiling for Professionals business unit. This web-based MA brings together this wide-ranging experience to create a contemporary MA, relevant to all those with an interest in professional communication.
You will be introduced to key ideas and concepts in applied linguistics and given the opportunity to analyse a range of media, from the huge variety of face-to-face interactions, remote conferencing and written communications that make up our workplace interactions, all sourced from authentic datasets. You will have access to interactive online modules, which you can progress through at a pace to suit your own needs. You will also have opportunities to interact and work with leading researchers in the field in developing your evidence-based understanding of workplace communication.
You will develop core analytical skills and enhance your knowledge, understanding and performance of communication in the workplace. The MA will also provide you with thorough training in research methods to enable you to design and conduct a study in an area of your choosing.The Professional Communication postgraduate programmes are designed to provide an alternative to masters programmes in traditional areas of business, management and communication studies, by providing working professionals with a unique opportunity to study workplace communication from an evidence-based, linguistic perspective. Our courses allow you to study while you work, providing the skills to carry out practical projects on particular aspects of your workplace practice, as well as reflect on your own workplace communication, with practical ideas on how to effect change.
