English Language & Linguistics

English Language & Linguistics was ranked 9th in the UK in the most recent National Student Survey (2014), with 93% student satisfaction. The Department was also part of Kent's REF2014 submission to Modern Languages and Linguistics that was ranked 3rd in the UK, with 85% of its published research graded 'world-leading' or 'internationally excellent'.

Linguistics, the scientific study of language, seeks to understand how languages are structured, used and acquired. What structural elements do languages have in common and in what ways do they differ? Are humans genetically predisposed to learn language? How does our linguistic and cultural background affect communication?

Students of English Language & Linguistics are highly articulate and some of the most employable graduates. English Language & Linguistics at Kent offers a range of undergraduate single and joint-honours programmes, exciting opportunities for study abroad and a wide module selection. Our postgraduate programmes offer more specialist study supported by academics with track records in world-leading research.
