PhD Languages and Cultures

University of Essex

We offer PhD supervision for the intersection of language and culture with other disciplines, such as literature, history, sociology, anthropology, and migration studies. A variety of methodological approaches may be used to support the collection, analysis, semiotics, and corpus linguistics, among others.

We meticulously designed this program to meet the increase demand for interdisciplinary studies and to delve into the relationship between languages and cultures. As a PhD candidate in Languages and Cultures, you will be guided in choosing an appropriate research paradigm, be it quantitative, qualitative, or mixed methods, for your empirical research. We also offer collaboration opportunities with research centres within the University.

Many of our former PhD students work in higher education institutions around the world, as teachers and/or as academic researchers. Other career paths our former PhD students have taken include publishing, social work, administration, and retail.
