You can combine Linguistics with a wide range of modern language and area studies within the School of Languages, Cultures and Societies, including Arabic, Chinese, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Portuguese, Russian, Spanish and Thai. These are typically four year courses with a compulsory Year Abroad. In each of these courses, you will do roughly half of your compulsory and optional modules in Linguistics and Phonetics, and half in your language subject. Combining Linguistics with a language gives you great practical competence in, and strong cultural and historical understanding of a language of your choice, combined with a firm grasp on the 'nuts and bolts' of language and speech, and an ability to view the language you specialise in from a wider, cross-linguistic perspective. In your final year, you will plan, carry out and write up an original research project under expert supervision by a member of staff.
