Course Summary

Foundation Entry degree courses are designed for students who have the ability to study for a degree, but don’t have the necessary formal qualifications to enter directly onto their chosen Honours degree programme. Whether your passion is for how language works, how language is used in different communicative contexts, or how to teach English to speakers of other languages, the English Language and Linguistics degree will have something to offer you. Taught by a dedicated team of active researchers, this is a flexible programme which enables you to specialise according to your own individual interests and future career plans. In focusing on the development of written skills, providing work-experience opportunities and offering an exciting and unique suite of career-oriented modules, the degree has everything you need to help you realise your potential and impress future employers. Studying the TESOL route allows you to gain the internationally recognised professional teaching qualification (Trinity Cert TESOL) alongside your undergraduate degree. The BA English Language and Linguistics course is a flexible course with two distinct pathways: a standard pathway and a TESOL (Teaching English as a Second Language) pathway. No matter which pathway you choose, the key feature is choice. Whether you are interested in language structure (syntax, phonetics and phonology, morphology), how language varies according to user and context, or the teaching of language, the English Language and Linguistics course will have modules suited to you. Alongside an exciting range of modules, relating to language acquisition and change, language and gender, political discourse and argumentation, forensic linguistics, literary linguistics and psycholinguistics, we have an integrated programme of study aimed at enhancing your proficiency in written English. Also with budding teachers and speech therapists in mind, we have developed unique career-specific modules- English in Education, and Language Pathology and Clinical Linguistics- which allow students to consider how to apply their linguistics skills to a professional setting. Alternatively, you could choose to specialise in the related areas of media, forensic and political discourse, or the ‘nuts and bolts’ of language by choosing syntax, phonology and morphology.
