The first three years of this course are the same as for Linguistics BA (Hons). If you choose this 4-year option you will focus on Bilingualism (Linguistics MArts or Cognitive Linguistics MArts are also options), during which you will take three postgraduate-level modules and complete a dissertation on a research topic closely linked to your chosen field. The aim of the fourth year is to develop your academic and transferrable skills and to increase your employability. Why choose Bangor University for this course? -Our School of Linguistics and English Language is one of the oldest linguistics departments in the UK. -Our degree programmes are taught by staff who are active researchers in a range of theoretical and applied areas relating to the English Language degrees - many have international reputations in the field. -Our Linguistics degree modules will give you a scientific insight into the structure and use of language, psycholinguistics (the relationship between mind and language) and sociolinguistics (the relationship between society and language). -Our modules cover a wide range of subject matters, and in your third year you will be able to focus your attention on those questions that interest you most - the final year consists of option modules. -Our wide range of learning facilities includes an extensive collection of books on Linguistics and English Language, a speech laboratory (in the Bilingualism Centre), as well as recording equipment for hire. -We have an annual David Crystal day when Prof. David Crystal, the world's foremost authority on the English language gives classes to students in the School. -A unique feature of this degree is the opportunity to take a Certificate in the Teaching of English as a Foreign Language alongside your degree.
