The course allows you to engage in the practical application of linguistics concepts, theories and practices, while studying the general aspects of the English language. There is a strong focus on phonetics, syntax, semantics, morphology and the psychology and cognition of language. In Year 1, you are introduced to many of the key concepts and skills that are required throughout your degree. In particular, the three Understanding Language modules provide you with the analytic building blocks for language study. In Year 2, you continue with the English language topics you are interested in, while delving into the practical work of applied linguistics. You are expected to consider psycholinguistics topics in more detail. In Year 3, you continue to specialise and may undertake more experimental research in your dissertations.
