We investigate how language works, how people use it, what people use it for, where it came from and how it changes. The range of research expertise represented by the three dedicated members of staff teaching on the course are reflected in a comprehensive suite of modules that include cognitive, sociolinguistic, historical, evolutionary, and discourse analytical topics.

Teaching takes place in the form of small group tutorials, occasional lectures, and sometimes lab sessions, depending on the module taken. All modules offer close and careful supervision, but students are expected to take proper responsibility for their studies.
