Course Summary

English language at Cardiff has a distinctive character. As would be expected of any good course, you will be provided with a rigorous grounding in the analysis of the language.You will learn such essential linguistic tools as phonetics, grammar and discourse analysis from those who are helping develop those fields. Since we take a broad approach to language, you will also learn how to analyse the types of multimodal texts (for example combining word, image and sound) that predominate in contemporary media.Language analysis, though, is just the starting point. What makes Cardiff special is our focus on the intersection of language with culture, society, politics and mind. While arming you with technical skills of analysis, we then expect you to grapple with exciting theories that will enable you to take into account the multifarious aspects of the context of language use and interpret the communication in a complex and meaningful way.We aim to provide a course that you can personalise to your own requirements. We provide a set of carefully-designed core modules that offer a solid base for all, but then allow you, with advice from your personal tutor, to carve out a programme that will best fit your interests and career aspirations.The course is organised to match a wide range of relevant career options. As a student in the School of English, Communication and Philosophy at Cardiff you will be taught by leading researchers in the subject.We pride ourselves on nurturing a friendly, personalised and supportive environment for our students, with staff spending a great deal of time at various points in the semester in individual one-to-one meetings with students.Distinctive featuresThe distinctive features of the course include:•core modules that offer a solid base for all but then allow you, with advice from your personal tutor, to carve out a programme that will best fit your interests and career aspirations•teaching by leading researchers in the subject•individual meetings with academic staff, supportive academic progress meetings with your personal tutor and an opportunity to attend research seminars and careers activities
