started my degree in English Language and Linguistics at York St
John I did not foresee that I would pursue studies at a
postgraduate level. I am currently studying for a Masters in
Linguistics at the University of York and am presently being
considered for PhD study at Lancaster University. My undergraduate
degree at York St John provided me with a thorough background in
Linguistics which I am building on in my postgraduate studies.
Members of staff in the Linguistics department specialise in
different areas, allowing a wide variety of modules to be on offer,
the only downside being that you cannot choose them all! I would
recommend both the University and the department to anyone
interested in language, just be aware that the enthusiasm of the
staff may rub off and you may find yourself hooked like
Kate received her BA (Hons) degree in 2006
and is now in her second year of a funded PhD study in
Linguistics at Lancaster University.
