Course summary

Linguistics concerns the study of language from a broad range of perspectives, including the way speech is articulated, how language is structured and related to meaning, and how it relates to speakers' intentions and purposes in social interaction. As well as studying how speakers and writers use language and how it is acquired, processed and used in communicative contexts, linguists also study social attitudes to language, and the way language functions to express identities and cultural values. The Educational Linguistics BA (Hons) programme at York St John University is distinctive in its focus on linguistics in educational settings. The programme aims to develop students' core skills in linguistics and apply these to educational contexts, for example, considering the applications of linguistics to the multilingual classroom, to first and second language acquistion, to the acquisition of written language, and the role of language in educational discourse. The programme also includes modules which consider language impairements and their diagnosis and management.We intend that this programme will be attractive to students considering careers in education, for example as teachers, SEN workers, or Speech and Language Therapists.
