Course summary

English Language

English is a global language that’s rich in history. In this course you will immerse yourself in the form, culture and analysis of the English language and learn to make the connections between what you study at university and what takes place in the world beyond the classroom. Combining your studies with another related subject will broaden your outlook and skillset and open up even more career opportunities.

We live in a modern world governed and connected by technology. So alongside understanding the history of English and how it’s become an international language, we believe you should study the nature of the 'wired' environment and how it influences who you are. As part of our approach to digital humanities, you will have the opportunity to see how communication and language operate on web-based platforms, and how the application of digital tools and methods can deepen the knowledge of your chosen subject area. 

Graduate careers

Our  graduates  have  strong  linguistic, reasoning and analytical skills, which are skills highly sought-after by many employers. As a DMU student, we develop your analysis and presentation skills to help you become an articulate, adaptable, professional communicator who can operate with ease in any professional setting and with and with a diverse range of people. 

Journalism graduates have gone on to work for some of the UK’s biggest media companies, including major newspaper groups, magazines, PR companies and the wider communications and digital media industries. Previous students have secured roles such as trainee journalist at the Loughborough Echo, trainee reporter at the Berkshire Media Group, broadcast journalist at Global Radio, junior features writer at Caters News Agency and a position on the ITV News graduate scheme.

Journalism

Journalists play a vital role in a democracy, and this course offers the opportunity to pursue a career that is not only exciting, but also crucial for informing debate and discussion on a wide range of questions affecting our lives.

The course is designed to enable flexibility to allow you to focus on specialist areas of your choice while also preparing you to challenge the status quo. Throughout the degree, you will be encouraged to focus on core issues of social equality, social justice, protest and marginalised communities in the UK.

You will learn the traditional core skills of researching, interviewing, writing and web-publishing, and gain multimedia skills within video and audio production. The journalism sector requires graduates who possess a broad digital multi-platform skillset, knowledge of media law and political structures, and have the ability to question structures in society.
