Study a linguistics degree in Ireland

Linguistics is the principal 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 on to more complex subjects in the second and third years, such as language acquisition and the difficulty of learning language with age.
