Linguistics is the principle study of the sound, grammar and meaning of different languages spoken by different people and cultures. Topics range from the analysis of advertising and marketing to the political rhetoric of world leaders, and students will learn the most effective ways of looking at and dissecting language.
During the first year of study, students will be introduced to phonetics and phonology, syntax and sociolinguistics modules before moving onto more complex subjects in the second and third years such as language acquisition and difficulty in learning language through age.
Linguistic graduates will find career opportunities in the areas of language therapy, translation, teaching English as a first or foreign language, interpretation and journalism.
Entry requirements vary for each Irish university, but students will need an IELTS score of 6.5 overall, no lower than 6.0 in each component, and an International Baccalaureate score of 30 points.
