We've been helping students find the right postgraduate course for over a decade.
Masters degrees in Linguistics examine the nature of language, studying its development, structure and acquisition. Research is often a big part of these Masters, and students will usually be able to undertake their own independent project, testing a certain hypothesis.
Some relevant postgraduate specialisms include Applied Linguistics, Sociolinguistics and Phonetics & Phonology.
As the scientific study of language, linguistics draws equally from the sciences and the humanities, providing a unique bridge between the disciplines. This means that a Linguistics Masters gives you ample scope to work and study in any number of areas.
For example, you might explore how English is acquired as a second language, eventually applying your knowledge in a TEFL (Teaching English as a Foreign Language) context, either as a teacher or designing learning materials.
Alternatively, your knowledge of human communication might open up employment opportunities in artificial intelligence, working on the latest technological developments to do with voice recognition and natural language understanding (NLU).
Other career possibilities include translation, publishing, journalism and further academic research.
