Undergraduate study

‌‌‌‌‌‌Our courses are specifically designed to combine linguistics, the scientific study of language, with practical study in languages and cultures.

If you are fascinated by the hidden patterns and structures in all languages, or are ready to find out what it takes to be fluent and culturally at ease in a foreign language, York is the place for you.
