Course Summary

The MA in Applied Linguistics is designed to engage students in a wide range of topics and perspectives relevant to the field of linguistics. We explore areas relevant to professional translation, the IT industry, education and language policy, language teaching, and publishing, all of which build your professional skills alongside theoretical understanding. This course gives you the chance to gain advanced knowledge of different approaches to contemporary linguistic issues and a greater understanding of the mechanisms underlying all human language. You will have the opportunity to carry out a sustained piece of independent research on a relevant topic of your choice.

This course will be of interest to those who work or who wish to work in language-related professions, such as professional translating, the IT industry, education and language policy, language teaching, and publishing, or who wish to pursue further academic research at doctoral level. Please note that this course is NOT a teacher training course - those wishing to go on to become a teacher will need to undertake/complete the necessary specific training and study to qualify as a teacher.
