By choosing to study this course, you will have the opportunity to significantly contribute to the well-being of local communities by engaging these groups with a range of collaborative activities. This is also a key aim of our new Research Centre in Language and Social Justice, based within our School.
The programme is informed and taught by our expert staff, who are internationally recognised for their research in language and social justice in a range of contexts.
Specialist research areas on the programme include: language, social justice and deaf communities; language, gender and sexuality-related inclusion in schools; language and in/equalities in higher education; language-based analysis of York’s and the North East region’s BME communities; inclusion and social justice issues relating to languages beyond English in schools; social evaluations of accent, dialect and multilingualism; inclusive/emancipatory (re)conceptualizations of English as an additional language.
We know that Postgraduate students often have jobs, families or other commitments to juggle alongside their studies, which is why we are proud to be able to offer this programme with both full-time and part-time options.
