UCL Psychology and Language Sciences


BA Linguistics

UCAS Code: Q100

Would you like your studies to put you at the centre of the intellectual universe? Are you interested in solving puzzles? Do you find it difficult to decide between the Arts and the Sciences? Would you like to understand how the human mind works? Do you find languages fascinating? If you answered 'yes' to any (or all!) of these questions, perhaps you should think about studying linguistics at UCL.

The BA Linguistics gives you an education in various aspects of language. At the core are courses about sentence structure (syntax), meaning (semantics and pragmatics) and pronunciation (phonetics and phonology), but you will also be given the opportunity to explore other themes, such as language acquisition or language processing.

Students frequently comment on the friendly atmosphere and accessible academic staff. Our graduates report an above average employment rate and starting salary.
