Course content

This programme offers students the opportunity to focus in detail on a chosen area of the subject, while still being able to take some taught courses. It is intended for those who already have a good background in Linguistics, typically from undergraduate study.

This is one of two MSc by Research programmes offered in Linguistics & English Language. You should choose this programme if you wish to specialise in an area of applied linguistics or sociolinguistics.

(See the MScR English Language programme if you wish to specialise in an area of English language or English linguistics.)

Programme structure

The main part of the programme will involve you writing a dissertation, and you should have an idea of the topic or area that you would like to write about when you apply. Students are given support in developing this topic during the year by an appointed supervisor and by dedicated training in research methodology.

Students are advised to take two taught courses (further courses may also be attended, but not for credit), which are offered from the wide range of subjects taught at Masters level within Linguistics & English Language.

Teaching will typically be in small groups, and supervision is organised on the basis of one-to-one contact with one or a small number of expert supervisors.
