About

This Modern Languages and Linguistics course offered at the University of Oxford allows students to study one modern language in depth together with linguistics, the study of language itself. Part of your course will consist of developing your practical language skills to a high level, and you will also explore the literature and culture of the relevant language (see Modern Languages). 

Overview

In your study of linguistics, you will be introduced to the analysis of the nature and structure of human language (including topics such as how words and sentences are formed, how we make and hear sounds, how languages change and vary and how language is organised in the brain) and you will apply these ideas to the study of your chosen language.

Careers

The training in rigorous analysis provided by Linguistics, coupled with highly developed practical competence in a language, gives graduates an excellent basis for a wide range of careers in language-related employment and other areas. Recent Modern Languages and Linguistics course offered at the University of Oxford  graduates include a management consultant, a brand marketing manager, a market researcher for a company in the chemical industry, and a psychology lecturer.
