Linguistics and Modern Languages

Welcome to Linguistics and Modern Languages.

If you love language, we know how to sharpen and develop your skills as a linguist. We focus on the practical, real-world applications of linguistics, and offer a range of course options to suit your interests. You can study our course on English Language and Linguistics on its own or in combination with a Modern Language, or with English Literature, or with Creative Writing.

The modules we offer reflect the specialisms of our staff: intercultural communication, style in language, conversation analysis, forensic speech science and translation are all key subjects we offer. As well as having a wide range of modules to choose from, our students are taught by scholars who produce world-leading research.

Reflecting our commitment to employability, all our courses also offer you the opportunity of a work placement in your second year and the chance to study abroad for part of your degree.

For those who want to study a Modern Language, the Modern Languages Centre provides learning opportunities from beginner to advanced levels. Our modules are designed to build your understandings of the language and your ability top communicate more fluently and accurately.
