Research in Applied LanguagesApplied Languages

Our research and teaching are very closely linked, and students benefit from this. Classes on the Applied Languages MA programmes are enhanced by staff's individual research profiles (see staff pages) as well as our involvement in the School's research clusters and the Centre for Linguistic Research

The majority of our work focuses on the relationship between theory and practice in Applied Languages; our work is therefore often collaborative and interdisciplinary. We have a growing number of PhD students interested in our work, and you can find current PhD students' projects here.

Thinking of a PhD?

After finishing their degree in Applied Languages, some of our students decide to continue their studies onto a PhD –usually to explore the topic of their MA dissertation in more depth.

Our academic staff can offer MPhil/PhD supervision on a wide variety of topics, please see the individual staff pages for details on their research interests and current PhD projects.
