On the course you’ll be introduced to the basic concepts and theories of linguistics. We’ll encourage you to study the role of language in society and how it helps humans understand things: how we acquire it, how it changes and evolves, and how it forms such an array of ways to communicate. We’ll carry out conversation analysis, sociolinguistics and stylistics to get under the surface of the spoken or written word. Additional Costs: Placements - The nature and suitability of your work placement is decided in consultation with your tutors. You are responsible for making your own arrangements for any travel or incurred costs in relation to the placement module, or in relation to the optional placement year if you chose to undertake one as part of your degree.
