Subject: Integrated PhD in Linguistics and English Language

May I publicise another outcome of the ever-strengthening links
between Linguistics and English Language at Manchester (resulting in
formal merger next year)? We have recently added to our portfolio an
integrated PhD in Linguistics and English Language. This four-year
programme involves taught courses in research methods and specialist
fields related to the research topic chosen, culminating in a PhD
dissertation. Teaching and dissertation supervision is drawn from the
exceptional range of expertise available. For details please see

Please draw this to the attention of potential postgraduate students
and those who advise them. Thank you. (Apologies for cross-posting.)
