Are you curious about our most crucially human attribute, language? Is a subject that combines the arts and sciences appealing? If you've found yourself asking 'why?' or 'how?' in relation to language, then Linguistics is for you.

Linguistics is the systematic study of human language. Superficially, there's huge variation among the world's languages, and linguists not only describe the diverse characteristics of individual languages but also explore properties which all languages share and which offer insight into the human mind.

Some of the students who appear in our course films are also featured in the 60 Second Impressions series, which can be found at http://www.cam.ac.uk/60seconds/ - keep checking back as we'll be adding new films every couple of weeks!
