The taught component of the programme divides into two parts. The first part, conveniently termed core courses, introduces you to the basic concepts, issues and methods in Linguistics. This part of the programme is compulsory. In the second part of the taught component, conveniently termed options, you can choose from a pool of available courses and, under guidance, tailor a programme to suit your particular interests.
