What Will You Study

Studying Linguistics and Psychology at Lancaster gives you the opportunity to benefit from superb quality of teaching in our Department of Linguistics and English Language and our Psychology Department. Our degrees are also accredited by the British Psychological Society and provide the Graduate Basis for Chartered Membership with the Society.

Language and Psychology are in many ways intimately linked and you’ll discover some natural overlap addressing questions, such as how language relates to thought and how our language is different from and similar to the signalling systems of other animals. With a wide range of courses available to you, you’ll be able to specialise in areas that interest you the most.

You’ll start your degree studying Language Description (for English Language) and Understanding Psychology. In your second year, you’ll move on to subjects such as English Sounds and Structures, and Cognitive Psychology before completing your degree with modules including Brain and Behaviour and Topics in Linguistic Theory.
