The BA in Linguistics is wide-ranging and interdisciplinary in its approach, drawing on research and scholarship in physics, engineering, psychology and philosophy, as well as expertise from across the Faculty of Modern and Medieval Languages. Whilst the course does provide good preparation for vocational training in fields such as speech therapy, language technology, translation, interpreting and forensic linguistics, graduates go on to pursue a variety of careers.
