English Language: English is an important language socially, politically and economically. Today it is a global language, with an estimated 1.5 billion speakers worldwide. English is the best-described language in the world and by studying for a BA in this field you can become proficient in understanding how English works, why and how it is used, where it has come from, as well as gaining knowledge in linguistic study. A degree in English Language teaches transferrable skills which include but are not limited to: critical reading and evaluation, research and analytical skills, proficiency in diverse modes of presentation (written, electronic and spoken), problem solving, working effectively with others, working with and without supervision, time management, information technology skills, effective interpersonal communication and personal organisation.
French: The BA (Hons) in French will give you advanced skills in the French language, and a broad range of specialised and detailed insights into the culture, society and history that go with it. The course has language at the heart of it, with core modules developing the key oral, aural and written skills every year. Assessment involves coursework and written and oral examinations. You will also complete a dissertation as part of your degree. Studying Modern Languages and Cultures opens the door to a wide variety of careers. Many Bangor Modern Languages and Cultures graduates have, of course, gone into teaching and translating, but just as many have embarked upon successful careers in the civil service, business and commerce, industry and the media. The skills you learn whilst studying languages – cultural awareness, communication, accuracy, planning and logical analysis – are valued highly by employers from all sectors of the economy.
