Descripción

Modern linguistics is the scientific study of all aspects of the world’s languages from their sound systems and grammatical structure through to the interaction of language with culture, the study of meaning in language, and the use of language in modern technology. Linguists try to establish what types of structures are shared by different languages and the extent to which languages may differ from each other.

Linguistics can be taken as a combined subject degree or a single subject degree. The list of possible subject combinations for the BA Linguistics and... degree is given above. SOAS is unique in the UK for being able to offer a range of subject combinations that include the opportunity to study the languages, literature, and cultures of Africa, Asia and the Near and Middle East. The study of linguistics may also be combined with a range of other disciplines in which the School has proven excellence such as music, law, development studies, economics, politics, religious studies, anthropology, art and archaeology and history. SOAS offers students an unparalleled range of options in choosing their second subject of study.

The linguistics component of the combined subject degree is designed to develop a comprehensive understanding of the way that languages are universally structured and trains students to master all the basic skills necessary for the analysis of different sound systems and semantics (the study of meaning in language). In addition, students may also take units dealing with language and social communication (focusing on the interaction of language and social groups), morphology (the structure of words), historical linguistics (the historical development of languages), phonetics and the structure of an African or Asian language.

¿Qué objetivos tiene esta formación?

SOAS BA Linguistics students gain the ability to engage in analytical thought, to carry out research like work on unfamiliar data and to control and understand the use of language. Graduates leave SOAS not only with linguistic and cultural expertise, but also with a portfolio of widely transferable skills which employers seek in many professional and management careers, both in business and in the public sector. These include written and oral communication skills, attention to detail,analytical and problem solving skills, and the ability to research, amass and order information from a variety of sources.

Studying a combined honours degree gives students to blend a solid grounding in another discipline or subject area which enables them to place the knowledge they gain as part of their degree within a specific regional, cultural or disciplinary context.

Requisitos: A language at A level or equivalent is desirable but not essential.

Programa académico

In linguistics, the introductory modules introduce key concepts in semantics, syntax, phonology and phonetics, and lay the foundation for work in succeeding years when intermediate, advanced and more specialised optional modules are available. Among the introductory cmodules in linguistics, Introduction to Phonology and Introduction to Grammatical Structure are core modules (i.e. modules which students must satisfactorily complete and pass in the summer examinations before being permitted to proceed to the next year of their degree). Compulsory units are obligatory. All BA students must take 4 module units per year. Over the course of the degree, single subject degree students take a minimum of 9 units in linguistics and combined subject degree students take a minimum of 5 units in linguistics. 4 year Programme Structure with 1 unit of Linguistics in year 1 Students who are required to take 3 language units in their 1st year, take General Linguistics 152900069 as their 4th unit. This imbalance is redressed in the 3rd year (when the year abroad is in the 2nd year) or in the 2nd year (when the year abroad is in the 3rd year) where they will take 3 units in linguistics and only one in the language. Please see the structure set out in the Programme Specifications PDF at the bottom of this page for more detailed information. 3 or 4 year Programme Structure that allows for 2 units of Linguistics per year Year 1 Core Modules Core modules must be passed in order to proceed to the following year of study.
