Linguistics is the study of how language works â how it is structured, used and understood. This degree allows you to study linguistics in the context of the English language, so you can develop a deep understanding of the way humans communicate with each other.
Core modules will introduce you to the history, structure and use of the English language and give you a good grounding in areas such as phonetics, syntax and conducting language research. But youâll also choose from a wide range of optional modules covering subjects such as language acquisition, psycholinguistics, sociolinguistics and discourse analysis.
Youâll study language in its spoken and written forms â youâll engage with texts, but also undertake fieldwork and data analysis, gaining a wide range of skills that stand out to employers.

Leeds was an amazing experience, probably the best student city in the UK. There’s no better feeling than whiling away the summers in Hyde Park with a cider and some good mates, and the nightlife is incredible – so many different student nights on, and the taxis are dirt cheap. A great bonding experience for all is The Otley Run – a 21 strong pub crawl that takes you into the city and how I forged some of my best friendships. In terms of the Uni, my course was amazing – loads of detailed lectures, secondary materials and passionate lecturers.
