Euogfarnau troseddol

You are not required to complete a DBS (Disclosure Barring Service) check or provide a Certificate of Good Conduct to study this course.

If you are currently subject to any licence condition or monitoring restriction that could affect your ability to successfully complete your studies, you will be required to disclose your criminal record. Conditions include, but are not limited to:

Strwythur y cwrs

The programme is offered in full-time mode over one academic year. You will need to complete 180 credits: 120 credits in taught modules and 60 credits in the dissertation. The dissertation can only be undertaken on successful completion of the taught element of the course. Each stage is weighted at 50% of the overall mark.

In the taught stage, you will take a mixture of core and optional modules totalling 120 credits. The core module base is focussed on research training and experience.

You will submit a proposal for the dissertation during the latter part of the taught stage. This proposal must be accepted before undertaking the dissertation.

This is a one-year, full-time programme. It consists of two core modules, four optional modules and a dissertation. The modules are taken over the two taught semesters; the dissertation is taken during the summer. You are advised to discuss your choices with the Programme Convenor and/or Personal Tutor

Mae'r modiwlau a ddangosir yn esiampl o'r cwricwlwm arferol. Byddant yn cael eu hadolygu cyn blwyddyn academaidd 2021/22. Bydd y modiwlau terfynol yn cael eu cyhoeddi erbyn mis Medi 2021.

This is a one-year, full-time programme. It consists of two core modules, four optional modules and a dissertation. The modules are taken over the two taught semesters; the dissertation is taken during the summer. You are advised to discuss your choices with the Programme Convenor and / or Personal Tutor.

The core modules are Research Foundations in Language and Communication, and Research Experience in Language and Linguistics; they are taken in the Autumn and Spring semester, respectively. 

Mae'r Brifysgol wedi ymrwymo i ddarparu amrywiaeth eang o opsiynau modiwl lle’n bosibl. Ond byddwch yn ymwybodol er y byddwn yn gwneud pob ymdrech i gynnig dewis, gall hyn gael ei gyfyngu mewn rhai amgylchiadau. Y rheswm am hyn yw'r ffaith mai dim ond nifer cyfyngedig o leoedd sydd ar gael ar rai modiwlau, a gaiff eu dyrannu ar sail y cyntaf i'r felin. Mae'n ofynnol i fodiwlau eraill sicrhau isafswm nifer o fyfyrwyr cyn gallu eu cynnal, er mwyn gwneud yn siŵr y gellir cyflwyno addysg o ansawdd priodol. Gall modiwlau gael eu cyfyngu oherwydd gwrthdaro yn yr amserlen hefyd, ac er bod y Brifysgol yn ymdrechu i amharu cyn lleied â phosibl ar eich dewis, byddai'n syniad da i chi ofyn am gyngor gan yr Ysgol berthnasol am y dewisiadau modiwl sydd ar gael.

Dysgu ac asesu

Sut y caf fy addysgu?

During the taught stage, you will be taught mostly through weekly seminars / workshops, where you will have the opportunity to develop an understanding of particular topics related to language and linguistics.

You will be able to discuss concepts and ideas in small groups and open class discussions, to consolidate and get feedback on your individual learning, and to develop communication skills in informal group discussions and oral presentations.

Depending on your prior experience, you might be encouraged to attend the lectures for various undergraduate modules as well. You will be taught through weekly or fortnightly supervision sessions in Research Experience. These will offer the opportunity for structured but independent learning of practical skills. Teaching will be varied and responsive.

All modules within the MA in Language and Linguistics make extensive use of the University’s virtual learning environment, Learning Central, where you can access discussion forums and find course materials.

During the dissertation stage, you will conduct independent research on a topic of your choice with regular supervision from a member of staff.

Sut y caf fy asesu?

The taught modules within this programme are assessed through a variety of methods, including academic essays, linguistic analyses, analytical reports, research projects and oral presentations. Modules are assessed on the basis of analytical descriptions of texts or other media and/or discursive essays. You will often be encouraged to choose your own texts for analysis, or to collect original data, and to relate your analyses to areas of personal interest.

The emphasis in assessment is placed on critical and conceptual sophistication as well as on the production of clear, persuasive and scholarly essays presented in a professional manner and submitted on time.

You are encouraged to consult the relevant module leader to discuss the main ideas and the plan for your assignments.

Sut y caf fy nghefnogi?

You will be allocated a personal tutor who will help you reflect on your performance on the course and advise you on study techniques, module selection and career planning (in conjunction with the University’s Career Service). They will also provide a first point of contact if you experience any difficulties. Each semester, you will have a scheduled Academic Progress and Personal Development Meeting with your personal tutor, where your career aspirations, strengths and weaknesses are discussed, and concrete strategies are developed to help you reach your full academic and professional potential.

The programme convenor for the MA in Language and Linguistics will provide a contact point for discussion of any problems arising from the course. You can have one-to-one discussions with the programme convenor or your personal tutor during set office hours during teaching weeks. We also welcome email contact.

In addition to the programme convenor and your personal tutor, the School has a number of other academic and administrative staff who are there to support you:

  • the Employability, Internships and Placements Officer ensures that any work experience and placement opportunities are advertised to all students and can help you with specific questions about employability;
  • the Disability and Diversity Officer ensures that reasonable adjustments are made for students with disabilities;
  • the Writing Skills Support Tutor offers one-to-one help with writing for both international and home students;
  • the Specialist Librarian for Language and Linguistics offers help and advice in finding books and other materials in the area;

Cardiff University’s Professional Services team are also available for advice and support.

Formative Feedback

Formative feedback is feedback that does not contribute to progression or degree classification decisions.  The goal of formative feedback is to improve your understanding and learning before you complete your summative assessment. More specifically, formative feedback helps you to:

  • identify your strengths and weaknesses and target areas that need work;
  • help staff to support you and address the problems identified with targeted strategies for improvement.

Formative feedback is offered on all modules by means of classroom discussions, activities and homework tasks (to scaffold students’ learning). Each module offered on the programme includes face-to-face, seminar-type tuition (often in small groups), which provides the students with opportunities for discussing and clarifying ideas, and obtaining formative feedback from module leaders and lecturers. The specific nature and structure of this formative feedback are somewhat variable depending on the topic and focus of the module / individual session.

Summative Feedback

Summative feedback is feedback that contributes to progression or degree classification decisions. The goal of summative assessment is to indicate how well you have succeeded in meeting the intended learning outcomes of a module and will enable you to identify any action required in order to improve.  All feedback should directly link to the module’s grading/assessment criteria.

Summative feedback is offered on all assessed work in the form of comments and advice on the separate feedback sheet. Feedback is provided in relation to the assessment criteria that are circulated to students through programme and module paperwork. You are specifically encouraged to discuss your feedback on your assessed work with the module leader and your personal tutor in order to reflect on your learning and to articulate areas for improvement as clearly as possible.

Pa sgiliau y byddaf yn eu hymarfer a’u datblygu?

On completion of the programme you will demonstrate the ability to:

  • analyse and discuss core areas of English language and linguistics, including phonetics, grammar, semantics, pragmatics and discourse analysis
  • identify and interpret a range of empirical linguistic phenomena and to use the relevant descriptive terminology
  • analyse and assess how different social and cultural contexts affect the nature of language and meaning
  • critically evaluate ideas, arguments and empirical research in language and linguistics
  • discuss information and ideas clearly and coherently in both written and oral formats
  • engage in independent reflection and enquiry and/or to work effectively in a team
  • collect, evaluate, synthesise and interpret qualitative and/or quantitative linguistic data
  • evaluate the impact of language use in a given context
  • sustain a critical argument that is responsive to the particular conventions of the genre
