Study type Taught


Both the academic and the geographical context make the course unique. The course is distinctive in its breadth, offering modules in core theoretical generative linguistics, conversation and discourse analysis, with special focus on the study of English.

You will develop many transferable skills including the ability to construct and manage an argument; working as a team to achieve common goals; the ability to recognise and solve problems; using initiative and working independently; self-management with the ability to carry out personal reflection; time management and organisation skills.

The course team has strong links with speech and language therapy and several members are involved in research with clinical applications regarding language and communication disorders and multilingualism.

The course develops knowledge in the study of language and can lead to doctoral study in linguistics and careers in publishing and teaching. Many graduates have chosen this course as a stepping stone towards a career in speech and language therapy.

IMPORTANT: A number of courses will be transitioning to the Belfast Campus. The new campus is on schedule to open its doors and welcome students from September 2021. With the impact of COVID-19 prevailing into 2021, the University is working closely with contractors to mitigate any impact of the pandemic on the opening date.
