About

A PhD in Applied Linguistics at the University of Glasgow will support students in the development of their theoretical and empirical skills, so that they are well-placed to make an original contribution to this dynamic field.

Overview

Suitable candidates are those who are eager to explore a range of language issues as they pertain and are applied to real-world settings, for example in domains such as education, workplace settings, and the media. 

Features 

  • Students at University of Glasgow are guided by leading experts in cutting-edge sub-disciplines within Applied Linguistics, spanning Systemic Functional Linguistics, Critical Discourse Analysis, forensic linguistics, multilingualism, language and identity, and language education in tertiary settings.
  • PhD students benefit from the interdisciplinary nature of the expertise and practice represented by the supervisory team, developing skills and understanding not only within Applied Linguistics, but being able to complement this with knowledge in the wider field of English Language and Linguistics as well as academic domains such as Education, Modern Languages (including Translation Studies), Cultural Studies and Media.

Programme Structure

We particularly welcome prospective PhD topics in the following areas:

  • Critical approaches to language and communication (with a specific focus on discourses of sustainability)
  • Language and education (with a specific focus on linguistic perspectives on the internationalisation of higher education; language learning and teaching in tertiary contexts; language learning motivation, attitudes and identity)
  • Professional and institutional discourse (with a specific focus on legal contexts, and analysis of spoken discourse)
  • Multilingualism (with a specific focus on social approaches to multilingualism; language and migration; language and globalisation; attitudes and identity)
  • SFL (with a specific focus on textuality and communicative dynamism)
