Degree Subject Intro: Linguistics
Linguistics - the scientific study of language - assesses aspects such as grammar, semantics and phonetics, alongside its cultural origins and development. It is a hotly debated subject, bringing poets, philosophers and neurologists into dispute over the way we speak.
A linguistics degree is useful if you intend to teach abroad, work in publishing or the civil service. Your skills will also be appreciated in marketing, advertising, industry and public sector organizations.
