The Integrated PhD in Educational and Applied Linguistics aims to help you achieve a critical conceptual understanding of practice, thought, evidence and theory relating to recent developments in applied linguistics.
This programme combines the support and structure of taught modules with independent research. It will introduce approaches to enable you to apply this understanding to your own professional context.
You take compulsory modules to gain the skills, knowledge and understanding to engage with and evaluate research and theory in education. These modules enable you to find a path for future research, prepare a research proposal, and carry it out. You will also take optional modules related to your professional situation.
You have at least one supervisor from the second year of study and will work with them on all aspects of planning, conducting and writing up your research. Your thesis can answer questions about an issue of professional concern or interest.
Research in the School is organised into a number of research clusters. You will be attached to one or more of them. You will have an opportunity to take part in the various activities of the cluster. These might include:
The expertise of our staff is used in a number of research centres within the University, such as:
•Centre for Learning and Teaching (CfLaT)
•Centre for Research in Linguistics and Language Sciences (CRiLLS).
The programme consists of taught modules and a research element, including a thesis of 80,000 words. It is a four year programme, with the taught element being carried out in year one and the research element in years two, three and four.
You will have an individual course of study based on your needs and sponsor's requirements. This will be designed with the Degree Programme Director based on the available optional modules. Most modules are delivered on weekdays during the day time.
As a student in the School of Education, Communication and Language Sciences you'll have access to facilities and a growing collection of online resources, including:
