Language in Society MA

Course Overview - Language in Society MA

In what way does society influence the way that we use language? And conversely, how far does the way we use language influence society? Can language use impact the class system? Sexism? Mental health?

On our MA Language in Society, you address questions like these through exploration of the stylistic, cognitive and functional aspects of language variation and change. We familiarise you with the foundations of contemporary sociolinguistics, including:


- Language variation and change


- Ethnography of speaking


- Multilingualism
