Many of our former PhD students in PhD Experimental Linguistics at University of Essex work in higher education institutions around the world, as teachers and/or as academic researchers. Other career paths our former PhD students have taken include publishing, social work, administration, and retail.
We also offer an MPhil in this subject.
Given the breadth of our provision within the Department of Language and Linguistics, career prospects for our graduates vary depending on the study undertaken. Often the career destination of our PhD students is university lecturing or research. Given the interdisciplinary nature of the areas of linguistics we cover, this could be in departments of English, linguistics, education, sociology or cognitive science.

A research degree allows you to develop new high-level skills, enhance your professional development and build new networks. It can open doors to many careers.
