Linguistics

Almost everything people do involves language at some point, whether it be buying a coffee, chairing a board meeting or making a friend. It is essential to human society and endeavours.

People often think that Linguistics involves learning languages. In fact, it is about understanding the workings of language. Why is it that we have different languages? Why do they change over time? What is the best way to learn or teach a language? How does the language of literature differ from other kinds of language?

A Linguistics degree connects the study of language to real-world problems and their solutions. It can therefore prepare you for a variety of careers.
