About

This course will provide you with the tools to describe language from various analytical perspectives and with insight and training in various branches of applied linguistics. A further component of the course relates to the development of research skills in terms of methodological training for conducting research in this field. There will be a number of invited guest speakers who are international specialists in their field, and who reflect student interests in a particular year. A thesis component allows specialisation on a research topic of specific interest to you.

While previous study of linguistics is not required, the course will specifically interest you if you are a language graduate or have an interest in a language-related career, such as language teaching, journalism, communications, media, speech and language therapy.
