    extensive training in research methods in the social sciences generally
    as well as in applied linguistics. It provides a wide range of
    transferable skills relevant to language research, communication skills
    and project management. The degree involves a mandatory research
    training module, worth 30 credits, 2 option modules of 30 credits each,
    as well as a 20,000 word dissertation module, which is worth 90 credits.

    Students typically have higher qualifications (a BA at a good Upper
    Second or First Class level or equivalent, or a Masters) in a language-
    or linguistics-related area, such as English language, psychology or
    linguistics. Most students intend to go on to do research.

    The MA (Res) in Applied Linguistics does not presuppose strong subject-specific knowledge, but aims to help students achieve this by the end of the programme.
