Program Description: The department of Applied Linguistics and Communication specializes in research into various aspects of language use and language functions in both the individual and society at large. Teaching and research are characterized by a strong cross-linguistic perspective, with academic staff combining an interest in the theoretical underpinnings of their various disciplines with an awareness of the practical implications of those disciplines.
All academic staff are active in 'state of the art' teaching and research, and Applied Linguistics at Birkbeck enjoys a strong international reputation for quality teaching and research. MA programs are offered in Applied Linguistics, TESOL and Language Teaching and Intercultural Communications for Professional Business. There is a linguistics component to the BA teaching as well. With combinations for joint degrees in Linguistics and Modern Languages, as well as Linguistics and Culture.
Applied Linguistics at Birkbeck also contributes to a number of courses to other programs offered at Birkbeck at both undergraduate and postgraduate level. The Undergraduate degree in Linguistics and Languages combines study of French, German, Spanish, Portuguese and Japaneses. Research programs available include an innovative integrated New Route PhD which combines a taught component with a research dissertation, and traditional research MPhil/PhD programs.
Available Financial Aid: Funding support and bursaries may be available for both undergraduate and postgraduate study.
