Course summary

Studying English Language and Linguistics will enable you to discover the changing shape of English over time and space, and the science behind language acquisition, processing and communication.

You’ll engage with theories of how language works as well as hands-on analysis of linguistic data. The challenging integration of theory and practice will enable you to become a uniquely skilled analytical thinker and problem-solver. Your knowledge and understanding of how a language work and how we communicate, and the skills you will develop along the way, will give you a solid foundation for a wide range of careers.

This flexible course allows you to focus on your main interests from the second year onwards. You’ll be taught by world-leading academics whose expertise covers a range of areas of linguistics.

Assessment

You'll complete coursework and exams, ranging from short sets of exercises and extended essays, to group projects where you research and present a topic in a team. Some of our advanced phonetics or phonology modules require spoken (oral) or listening (aural) assessments. In most modules, the final mark is made up of the marks for more than one type of assessment.

You'll also take formative assessments, which do not count towards your final mark, but offer you feedback on your progress and development. Types of feedback can include in-class discussion of common problems on a assignment, model answers, one-on-one discussion of research projects and online responses on the module discussion board, as well as written feedback on work that you have submitted.
