About

The MA in Applied Linguistics from Canterbury Christ Church University is the best way to develop a deeper understanding of the many ways in which languages work and the many different fields to which the practical study of languages can be applied. Although the programme focuses on the English language, its theoretical and practical insights can be equally applied to other languages.

Overview

Participating in this programme gives you the opportunity to strengthen your theoretical knowledge of all the formal aspects of the English language, while at the same time exploring how pervasive and powerful language use is in our societies. 

As part of your Applied Linguistics degree at Canterbury Christ Church University, you will see how language is used and researched in a variety of professional contexts; media, advertising, education, translation, healthcare and the law being some examples. The practical component of the degree will give you opportunities to put into practice what you have learnt in one or more of these professional areas.

The main strength of this programme lies in the diversity of professional contexts that are analysed, which will help you decide in which direction you want to take your career.

You will:

  • develop a sophisticated and systematic breadth and depth of knowledge and understanding of linguistics in terms of language system and language use and its applications in applied linguistics;
  • gain a systematic and critical understanding of relevant applied linguistics knowledge and theory in terms of language acquisition, communication and the social-cultural dimensions of language, as well as their applications in applied linguistics;
  • apply a range of relevant knowledge and theory in applied linguistics to a workplace setting in terms of professional practice;
  • evaluate, apply and critique a range of appropriate and ethically-considered methodologies for applied linguistics research, evaluation and evidence-based practice, demonstrating ability to argue for alternative and creative approaches;
  • carry out a sustained piece of ethical empirical research which successfully applies linguistics knowledge and theory, data collection and analysis, which in so doing develops you as a researcher;
  • become autonomous, independent and innovative in scholarship, demonstrating ability to deploy a range of learning resources for research and self-critical writing, take responsibility for personal professional development and engage in academic and professional communication with others.

Your future career

Graduates of this course will be able to pursue careers in a variety of industries, including advertising, media, publishing, education, translation and language consultancy for a variety of professional fields. Others may use this as a way to start their own business.Students completing this MA might also go on to undertake a PhD in Applied Linguistics or a teaching qualification to take their practice into a school, FE or HE setting.
