Course summary

Are you fascinated by the power of language? If you've enjoyed studying language before, English Language and Linguistics is your opportunity to expand your knowledge and delve deeper into this fascinating area of study. On this course you will gain the confidence and skills to analyse the way language is used in society, looking at social interaction, digital media, political and commercial discourses, literature and the creative arts.You'll explore the history of the English language and how language varies in today's society, as well as covering practical topics such as how children acquire language and methods for teaching English to speakers of other languages.We'll give you an insight into more specialised areas of linguistic expertise, teaching you how to apply a range of research and analytical methods to language use.You'll have the chance to broaden your perspective on language by learning another language, or taking one of our literature modules. We'll also give you the chance to take part in creative writing workshops, in which you’ll produce your own creative writing and learn how to give and receive criticism.We believe that the study of language and linguistics should engage your creativity as well as your research and forensic skills. So we won't just ask you to write essays – we encourage the creation of blogs, podcasts, posters, quizzes and presentations to help you think creatively about communicating your knowledge and ideas. You can also choose to take a creative writing module at each level of your programme, working with our expert tutors who are published poets or novelist.**Placement opportunities**Professional work placements form an integral part of your degree. Our students have completed placements in primary or secondary schools, film production companies, recording studios, libraries and organisations providing language services.
