This programme is designed for students with a particular interest in linguistics or English language, gained through, for example, previous undergraduate level study or appropriate experience in areas such as linguistics, English language, English literature, philosophy, sociology or other related areas such politics, history, cultural theory, teaching English as a foreign language. Read more
This programme is designed for students with a particular interest in linguistics or English language, gained through, for example, previous undergraduate level study or appropriate experience in areas such as linguistics, English language, English literature, philosophy, sociology or other related areas such politics, history, cultural theory, teaching English as a foreign language.

There are three complementary routes through the programme:

The MA in Linguistics equips students with knowledge of critical theory in the area of theoretical linguistics and philosophy of language, more specifically the syntax/semantics interface, the semantics/pragmatics interface, and grammar.

The MA in English Language offers students the opportunity to investigate language in its social and cultural contexts. Students explore the English language from several perspectives: language variation and language attitudes, language and identity, language in interaction and cross-cultural communication.

The MRes (Master of Research) in Linguistics is designed for students who already have some background in linguistics, and who intend to progress to PhD study. It is designed as an enhanced route of entry to a PhD programme: it gives students an opportunity to develop research skills early on in order to prepare for doctoral research.

The programme also equips students with high level research skills and a sound basis in theory. The dissertation allows students to address an issue from their disciplinary specialism with the experience of having studied a range of areas of enquiry from different modules. Students write up dissertations equipped with appropriate research skills and knowledge provided by their chosen programme of study.
Course structure

The programme is designed for both full-time and part-time students. Modules are taught across the two semesters, usually in nine sessions per semester. The sessions are held on a weekly basis and are timetabled to accommodate both full-time and part-time students. The programme offers opportunities for study within a flexible framework that can fit in with students' professional and personal commitments.

In addition, students are expected to work independently and engage with reading and research in their subject area. Students are offered support through tutorial supervision and the university's online virtual learning environment.
Areas of study

The programme is comprised of the following subject areas:
Semantics (lexical semantics)
Pragmatics: minimalism and contextualism
Philosophy of language
English grammar
Language variation and language attitudes
Language and identity: social class, age, gender, ethnicity, social networks
Language in interaction: linguistic politeness, speech accommodation, cross-cultural communication
Feminist theory and linguistic theory
Ethnocentrism and racial prejudices in colonial discourse

Linguistics students approach the study of these areas by:
- analysing and evaluating different approaches to studying the structure of the English language
- engaging with theoretical frameworks which attempt to account for meaning in language
- examining the relationship between philosophy of language and linguistics, and the influence of philosophical theories on the analysis of language.

English language students approach the study of these areas by:
- examining theoretical and analytical frameworks that explore issues of language variation, language contact, language and identity
- analysing the role of language in social relationships and practices
- examining how linguistic theory can be applied to the analysis of literature and culture.

Optional subject areas
Students on the MA Linguistics programme may choose to follow one of the option modules, Discourses of Culture or Topics in Sociolinguistics, or one of the Cultural and Critical Theory modules.

Students on the MA English Language programme may choose to follow one of the option modules, Semantics/pragmatics interface: approaches to the study of meaning or Discourses of Culture or one of the Cultural and Critical Theory modules.

Students on the MRes Linguistics have an opportunity to shape their research degree based on their particular interests within linguistics, including research modules.

Literature at Brighton is framed by an awareness of contexts and the social production of texts. As a product of this culture, the Literature MA offers a distinctive combination of practice-based literary studies and critical textual analysis. One of the original aspects of the course lies in its approach to marrying critical approaches to literary studies with an awareness of writing as a creative and critical practice. This course enjoys a distinct identity in its pronounced focus on the practice of writing as a craft, one best understood through both engaging in practice and studying the practice of others. Combining critical, experimental, historical and philosophical approaches in and beyond academia, the study of textual practices - the questioning of representations, tensions and innovations - forms a discursive framework around which understandings of the place and function of writing in contemporary society take place. Core modules address texts, theories and cultures, practising rhetoric and location-focused literary studies: option modules offer experience in the emerging fields of twenty-first century literature, gender and performance, literature and conflict, American fiction and poetry, Victorian journalism, screenwriting and writing as a creative craft. Founded on the belief that good writers also make good readers, the Literature MA makes the necessary connections between critical and creative approaches to the discipline in the twenty-first century.

Areas of study
The course is structured around essential core modules, a research skills module and the dissertation. Options allow you to explore areas of personal interest in literature and further afield in the arts.

Practising Rhetoric
Rhetoric and rhetoric studies offer a distinctive third way between creative and critical approaches to the theory and practice of writing, and enables students to see their own and others writing within a long and valued tradition on the form, place(s) and functions of effective communication. Students are encouraged to assess and analyse a wide variety of genres and modes of writing (from conventional literary texts to political speeches and advertisements), and to practice their own writing in critical, creative or professional outputs through placing language use and affect as central to their writing and speaking practice.

Cultural Theory
This core module offers an advanced introduction to the field of cultural theory and its application to literary texts. Based around close readings of key texts, the course critically interrogates central cultural concepts and thematics in the work of key cultural theorists working in the last half of the twentieth century and into the twenty-first. More generally, the course aims to examine and assess the nature and purpose of cultural theory in the contemporary world, and does so by tracing theoretical shifts and reconceptualisations of culture in relation to social, political, and geographical contexts.

Writing the City
This module uses Brighton as a case study to move from a local to a global understanding of the relationship between texts and contexts, literature and location. The module is a celebration and critical review of representations of the city, as well as a space to consider some familiar and some lesser-known cultural responses. Examining representations of cities as well as work from their communities of writers and artists, students are encouraged to theorise texts in terms of space and place as well as reframe political topographies and geographies. Developing students? understanding of the ways in which texts engage with socio-cultural contexts and enter into dialogue with representations of the past, present and future, the module will encourage critical and creative reflection on student experience of the city and promote their active role in (re)presenting location in literature.

Research Skills and Training
Studies are framed around the broad question what is research?, and seeks to place the student?s own practice and academic work in this context. Having considered the value of research into the arts and culture a series of seminars and workshops will introduce students to the key research methods. These will be discussed throughout in the context of the student?s own plans for research. As these discussions develop students move towards direct consideration of a research proposal which will in turn form the basis of the assessment.

Dissertation
The dissertation is the culmination of the degree and provides an opportunity for students to explore their research in a focused and organised fashion through a project of their own design. Building upon the learning students have benefited from throughout the programme they will be encouraged to develop their thinking on the dissertation. The intention is for students to develop a reflexive and critically engaged dissertation that makes a genuine contribution to debates in literature.

Options
Students can choose literature options and from across the faculty?s disciplines including performing gender, the ethics of fiction, creative writing, screenwriting and humanities.

Syllabus

In the autumn term, you’ll take two core modules. In the spring term, you choose two options. In the summer term, you choose between working on a supervised research-led dissertation on a topic of your choice or a placement in a relevant organisation, which you will then analyse and present in a portfolio.

Assessment is by term paper, presentations and portfolios. The final assessment may take the form of a 15,000-word dissertation or a portfolio of practical and written work.
