Course Summary

This course will build on the undergraduate experience of English Language and Linguistics (or cognate) degrees. The University is committed to providing timely and appropriate feedback to students on their academic progress and achievement, enabling them to reflect on their progress and plan their academic and skills development effectively. Students are also encouraged to seek additional feedback from their course tutors and lecturers. Our validated courses may adopt a range of means of assessing your learning. An indicative, and not necessarily comprehensive, list of assessment types you might encounter includes essays, portfolios, supervised independent work, presentations, written exams, or practical performances.

We ensure all students have an equal opportunity to achieve module learning outcomes. As such, where appropriate and necessary, students with recognised disabilities may have alternative assignments set that continue to test how successfully they have met the module's learning outcomes. Further details on assessment types used on the course you are interested in can be found on the course page, by attending an Open Day or Open Evening, or contacting our teaching staff. Students graduating at MA stand a better chance of entering into subject‐related careers (e.g. publishing, marketing, lexicography), managerial positions in business and/or the public sector. The MA in English Language and Linguistics is a general degree and will prepare students for work in any field in which making sense of large amounts of information, close analysis and precise use of language, designing projects, and writing reports is a core skill. Those students who are teachers, or propose to be teachers or academics will find the degree an essential stepping stone to career advancement.
