|Program Description:||New MSc in Language and Linguistics, School of Communication, University of Ulster
The School of Communication is delighted to announce that a new MSc in Language and Linguistics will begin in the 2007/2008 academic year.
The course is available on a full-time and a part-time basis.
The programme provides training in postgraduate level research skills in language and linguistics. The programme is specifically designed not only to provide students with postgraduate level conceptual training across the various areas of language and linguistics, but also crucially to afford students the opportunity to focus on the development of their research skills within their chosen subdiscipline. Both the academic context and the geographical context of the programme make the programme unique. Based within the School of Communication, the programme is distinctive in its breadth, offering modules in core theoretical generative linguistics as well as modules in conversation and discourse analysis. The Northern Irish context provides a particularly interesting local language situation and the programme team includes a leading international expert in microvariation. The programme team has strong links with speech and language therapy and several of the team are involved in research regarding clinical applications to language and communication disorders.
The programme is thus particularly relevant to:
• Students with an undergraduate background in language and linguistics who are interested in progressing to doctoral level
• Students interested in microvariation and wishing to work with a leading researcher in the field
• Teachers of English as a Foreign Language who wish to gain a Masters level qualification for career development and enhancement
• Language professionals, such as speech and language therapists, who wish to specialise in theoretical linguistics and develop their analytical and research skills in language and linguistics
