LINGUISTICS will enhance and directly influence your understanding of human communications, identity and how language constructs and constrains meaning. This joint honours has been designed for those who wish to enhance their written and verbal communication whilst understanding how language constructs and constrains meaning in societies and for those who wish to add creativity to their degree. If you have an interest in the way that communication is shaped, wish to understand the complexity of literary texts and languages and how research can help us to understand them and the power of language, then this combined degree will provide you with these vital skills. English at NTU is taught by expert academics and award-winning writers. You’ll be able to study an exciting array of literature dating from the Renaissance period right through to the 21st Century. You'll examine a range of literature such as; Shakespeare, American literature, Black writing in Britain, travel writing and modern poetry. Through the varied modules you’ll explore key debates, enhance your communication skills and become more creative in the way that you write. You’ll be able to engage with a detailed cultural programme of events where you’ll be able to meet and converse with writers, film makers and other practitioners to gain a greater insight into English and to learn additional expertise.

Linguistics will provide you with the knowledge which is required to analyse language on a larger and more detailed scale, paying attention to the power that language has to construct meaning in societies. You'll learn language structure, the study of meaning and the social functions of language. To study this course we will not expect you to have prior knowledge of grammar; foreign languages; or technical terminology.You'll examine the latest developments in clinical linguistics, media discourse, child language acquisition and research in languages and gender and then be taught how to carry out research like linguists do.This joint honours degree will equip you with the vital tools that are needed to analyse language and to discuss the power that language has to construct meaning in our worlds. Both subjects will strengthen your writing and understanding of the English language. You'll be able to think more critically and contextualise theoretical approaches to the study of English. 100% of our Linguistics undergraduates are in work or further study within just six months of finishing their degree (DLHE 2016/17).
