At the end of the programme students will be able to embark on professional careers in language-related fields with emphasis on the region in which the language chosen for the programme is spoken. They will also be able to undertake further study, e.g. for a research degree in linguistics.
The programme is run on a modular basis to suit students with little or no training in linguistics who:
- Wish to acquire a more profound knowledge of the discipline or take the degree as a conversion course before proceeding to a research degree.
- Are looking to gain a working knowledge of an Asian, Middle Eastern or African language.
The programme is built on the MA Linguistics and includes all parts of this programme (4 units). In addition, it includes 4 units of language study, delivered by relevant departments in the Faculty of Languages and Cultures, resulting in a unique two-year programme. Languages are available at Beginners' or Intermediate level. For some languages, a special research period in the country where the language is spoken may be included.
With a student population of around 4,000 from over 100 countries, our relatively small size ensures that we offer a friendly and welcoming environment while at the same time being able to take advantage of all University of London facilities.
