Overview

In linguistics you will learn about the nature and development of different languages. In philosophy you will discover that reflection on language is a key part of any inquiry into philosophical questions.

Compulsory modules in linguistics provide you with the analytical tools you need to study human language. Optional modules give you the chance to specialise in areas of the subject that catch your imagination, including language acquisition, historical linguistics, or the study of language in its social and cultural contexts.

The philosophy side of the degree is flexible. There are no compulsory modules. You can develop your understanding of key areas such as philosophy of language, ethics, philosophy of mind, theory of knowledge, political philosophy, metaphysics and logic. We also teach courses on major figures such as Plato, Aristotle, Descartes and Hegel.
