What will I learn?

Applied Linguistics MA

This MA explores language from a wide range of perspectives. It is designed to develop understanding of key concepts and issues related to applied linguistics and engage students in the theoretical and empirical investigation of real-world situations, contexts and issues in which language plays a crucial role, while also exploring language education globally. This programme will provide students with insights into applied linguistics and language education from socio-cultural, discourse, bilingual, cognitive, and global perspectives. It will also develop students' capacity to analyse, evaluate and synthesise linguistic data, primary and secondary sources, as well as helping them to design research.

Careers

Graduates of this programme include university and college lecturers, senior managers and directors of study in private and state sector schools, textbook, materials, and content writers, editors and publishers, journalists, NGO project officers, education consultants, policy advisers and researchers, and consultants in different industries, including aviation.

Employability

This programme not only provides an outstanding foundation for those hoping to undertake PhD research and pursue an academic career, but is also popular with students wishing to develop their career internationally or go into education. Group discussions and debates on the programme help students to acquire strong presentation and negotiation skills. Likewise, the analytical and research skills gained by students are highly valued by employers from a range of sectors. There are many additional activities available, both within the department and the wider UCL community, to help students focus on employability skills whilst they hear, for example departmental talks and other networking opportunities.
