Carear PathThis MA programme will specifically interest language graduates and those with an interest in language issues in society and a language-related career. Given the diverse branches of Applied Linguistics, students have considerable scope for specialisation in a research area of specific interest to them. A further strength of the programme is the training students receive in Research Methods, thereby developing generic skills which graduates will continue to draw upon in their future careers as well as in subsequent study at doctoral level for example. Occupations associated with Applied Linguistics - Language teaching and education - Journalism - Communications - Media - Public relations - Speech and language therapy While these are examples of career areas, the generic and transferrable skills developed on the MA programme will be helpful in all career paths.
