Course summary

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.

You will get the chance to learn about subjects like the grammatical structure of English (word order, sounds, vocabulary, meaning and so on), the history of English, English dialects and social variation, English in society, English in education, cultural aspects of English, global English, and more.

You will also undertake modules to develop your understanding of the areas of general linguistics which are required to study the linguistics of English. Depending on which modules you choose, this could include topics like child language acquisition, discourse analysis, corpus linguistics, psycholinguistics, bilingualism and multilingualism, languages in contact, historical change, and other subjects based on the expertise of our teaching staff.

German

This course will equip you with advanced skills in the German language, as well as offering a broad range of specialised and detailed insights into the culture, society and history of the German-speaking lands. The course has language at the heart of it, with core modules developing the key oral, aural and written skills every year. These modules also foster cultural awareness, which you will need for your year abroad, and later on, for the world of work. This course will furnish you with extensive knowledge of the heritage and culture of modern Germany and Austria. You will also have the added bonus of studying Dutch in your second year which opens up further horizons within Europe.
