Linguistics

Does a subject which straddles the divide between arts and sciences appeal to you? Do you like languages and a logical approach to problem-solving? Then the course in linguistics may be for you.

Linguistics is the scientific study of languages that aims to answer important questions in a wide range of areas. What do languages like Nepali and Irish have in common? Why is the language of Chaucer so different from Present-day English? What is the most effective way to help people with dyslexia or aphasia? Linguistics at the University of Cambridge (ranked first in the UK University League, The Guardian 2018) gives you the opportunity to explore all these fascinating aspects of what makes us human!
