MA Communication and Language Studies


Course Description

Study

The interdisciplinary MA in Communication and Language Studies focuses on language as the key to comprehending today’s world and the increasingly globalised future. The course is intended specifically for international students, integrating English proficiency and skills training into the overall programme. Students will enhance their knowledge of language as a cultural object and its uses across communicative contexts and media.

Structure

Students take a combination of compulsory and optional modules, building a solid foundation in the discipline ready to specialise in module areas of particular interest. Assessment is on the basis of coursework seminar papers, oral case studies, essays and a final dissertation.

Teaching

Teaching is mainly through the media of seminars and individual dissertation supervision, delivered with a high level of contact time, so you will find yourself working with students who have different language pairs to you which leads to fascinating cross-cultural exchanges. You will have access to extensive resources to support your studies, namely the James Platt Language Centre.

Employability

Graduates will have developed to a high level of awareness and understanding of the issues of culture and communication against claims of globalisation. They will be familiar with different approaches to such issues with the ability to assess approaches critically, evaluate their usefulness, and offer a sharp practical and analytical grasp of the English language and culture in the British academic environment. The programme also provides a foundation for further postgraduate studies at MPhil and PhD level.
