Studying linguistics will enable you to learn about, understand and interpret many aspects of human language. You will study the ‘science’ behind language, including possible sounds used in speech and their combination (phonetics, phonology), how words are built up morphology), what distinguishes sentences from just strings of words (syntax), meaning (semantics and pragmatics), the effect that society, culture and norms have upon language use (sociolinguistics) and how languages change over time.

English at Bangor University encompasses English Language, English Literature and Linguistics. Studying English Language will introduce you to the tools and methods used to explore and describe the most widely understood language spoken in the world today. Studying English Literature provides the opportunity to develop a thorough knowledge of literary texts, theory, history and criticism. Linguistics, like all the sciences, involves the systematic study of the patterns and regularities found in speech and language data.

*The year of entry refers to the academic year in which the course begins rather than the calendar year. E.g. a course with a March 2024 start date will be shown as 'March 2023/24 Entry' because the academic year starts in September making 2023/24 the relevant academic year. Similarly, a course with a January 2023 start date will have 'January 2022/23 Entry' because 2022/23 is the academic year of entry for that course.
