This degree combines the study of foreign languages with linguistic theory. You choose two languages to study and will gain near-native fluency. You also study linguistics, concentrating on the structure, history and use of both the English language and your foreign languages. Topics include syntax, phonology and morphology, semantics and pragmatics, and sociolinguistics and language acquisition. You'll also spend a year studying or working abroad, immersed in the culture of another country, developing your language skills and confidence.
