About the course

Overview

If you're ready to take your expertise in Languages and Applied Linguistics into a postgraduate research degree, then Portsmouth is the perfect place to fulfil your ambition.

Our Languages and Applied Linguistics research investigates how words are used in different contexts, and how language influences social phenomena and identity. We're looking at how language – particularly English – can drive economic and social development, and how international companies and organisations are taught multiple languages. We're identifying how language is used in different ways such as to express ideas and empower the marginalised, and exploring how technology is changing the international translation industry.
