The School of Languages, Cultures and Linguistics offers a wide range of research and coursework programs. Some are offered within particular programs of the School while others are available across programs.
Coursework and Research degrees are categorized separately by the university.
The School offers coursework programs for graduates looking to improve their skills in two specific areas:
- Interpreting and Translation Studies provides courses to develop students’ skills in translation/interpreting in English and another language, and their awareness of practical and theoretical approaches to translation/interpreting and translation/interpreting studies.
- Courses in Applied linguistics give students a critical understanding of theoretical and practical issues relating to applied linguistics, including training in research in the field and equip students with skills to make a significant professional contribution to the field of applied linguistics.
The School offers research degree programs at both Masters and PhD level, allowing students the opportunity to work under the supervision of outstanding researchers in many disciplines and to participate in a stimulating research community.
The School also offers two joint PhD programs with international partners: Freie Universität Berlin/Free University of Berlin and Università di Bologna/Bologna University, and a PhD program in Translation Studies.
