The MLitt in Language Policy and Planning aims to provide students with an advanced knowledge of contemporary research, good practice in methodology and theory, and opportunities for independent research in the scholarly analysis of the sociolinguistic situation of minoritised languages and of strategies for the preservation and promotion of such languages. It provides for the establishment of core knowledge through the compulsory courses, and considerable choice in the discipline-specific optional modules. In core courses, students will gain an in-depth knowledge of the nature and processes of language shift, and of the various theories advanced, and practices employed, in attempting to address language shift and preserve and promote minoritised languages.
