MA Linguistics: Language and Society

Do you want to learn more about how language shapes and maintains groups and societies? And use your skills to tackle societal issues? Then you should seriously consider this programme.

Language is a crucial ingredient in the creation and maintenance of any democratic society. How this works is at the core of this programme. The aim of the programme is to equip you with the skills necessary to tackle some of the challenges that modern societies are facing, through an awareness and knowledge of the power of language, as well as critical analytical tools that can unravel ‘the veil of language’ and expose the structures that shape our thinking. Areas that can be focused on include issues of integration and minority/majority relations, media representations of different groups and events in society, power structures related to gender, ethnicity, religion, age, sexual orientation, to name but a few.
