The Linguistics track trains you as a professional linguistic researcher, specialised in either Human Language Technology or Forensic Linguistics. 

Human Language Technology is a young and rapidly evolving research field that holds a unique position between linguistics and computer science. Nowadays, a firm background in language technology and the ability to process large data sets are extremely valuable tools in linguistic research. As a student of this track, you’ll get acquainted with the essential large computational linguistic resources, learn programming in Python for linguistics, and develop skills in Natural Language Programming and machine learning. Through this intensive research programme, you’ll become a true professional in human language technology.

Forensic Linguistics is a new and exciting field. It’s about the use of linguistic evidence in the courtroom. But it also refers to all areas of overlap between language and the law, including the language used in legal or quasi-legal settings by players. As a graduate of this track, you’ll have the theoretical background and practical casework experience to be able to analyse disputed texts, recognise a 'language crime', and identify participants in the police station or courtroom who are at a linguistic disadvantage, and therefore vulnerable to miscarriages of justice.
