Departmental Colloquium (Week 8) - Elliott Lash

Welcome

At York we are driven by an interest in what language is, in every sense. 

  • Our teaching and research has been consistently highly-rated over a number of years. 
  • We are one of the few departments in the UK to combine the study of modern languages with linguistic study, and our BA degrees offer a variety of combinations of languages and linguistics.
  • Our degrees equip our students with a variety of practical and analytical skills which have significant value in the modern world.

Our university encourages research-led teaching. We offer a wide range of courses guiding you into linguistic research in the final year BA modules and MA modules.
