Module overview

This module will introduce you to solving real world problems in the area of Language, Culture and Communication with research methods including forms of Discourse Analysis, Multimodal analysis, Questionnaires, Surveys and Corpus Linguistics.

You will reflect on some key issues such as the nature of knowledge, theory and data. This will allow you to critically evaluate studies and their research methods, and to design your own study. You will also discuss practical challenges of designing and conducting research such as defining research questions, identifying appropriate methods, research management and problem solving, writing up research, ethical issues, presenting research and thinking reflexively about research.

You will also be introduced to the option of producing a professional project, which might be particularly relevant if you chose a year abroad or a year in employment.
