What Will You Study

The PhD in Applied Linguistics (by Thesis and Coursework) is the ideal programme for those with professional experience and/or who have previously studied in the field of Applied Linguistics, and want a PhD that broadens as well as deepens their knowledge of relevant research and research methodologies. The programme’s flexible design allows students to choose modules offered by any of the department’s MA programmes, on-campus or distance, as well as modules specific to the Thesis and Coursework programme.  Many students in this programme are professionals balancing PhD studies with full-time careers, and this contributes to the rich and stimulating academic environment.

Taught courses are covered in four short intensive residential events at Lancaster, and students receive individual supervision and academic support throughout their degree.
