Our research areas include discourse analysis, writing and speaking in English, second language acquisition, sociolinguistics and computer-mediated communication.
The focus of the programme is the English language in different contexts and different communicative situations. We look at current issues in the different areas of Applied English Linguistics, the status of English as a global language, and communicating and learning in different environments including technology-mediated environments. A course specifically on linguistic method is included in the programme in order to prepare you for writing and presenting your thesis work.
In addition to building on your existing knowledge of linguistics, this degree will help prepare you for continued studies in applied linguistics. The skills and competencies developed during the programme are also of value in the workplace where expertise in communication in English is a merit.
