Course summary

Reading an inspiring work of literature isn’t just a pleasure, it can help build up useful skills and understanding too. Combine that with a close study of language – the building blocks that go into the written and spoken word – and you could develop an extremely analytical mind and some highly transferable skills that employers are looking for. Why English Language and Literature? * State-of-the-art facilities including a forensic linguistics lab, a research and resource centre and conference labs. * Opportunity to take a five-week placement as part of the ‘Language in the Workplace’ module – a chance to see how the language skills you’ve learnt on the course can be applied to communication in a working environment. * Get involved in the writing, editing and production of the popular department linguistics magazine, Babel - https://babelzine.co.uk/ * English Literature is in the top 3 English departments in the UK for student satisfaction (NSS 2018). * Our team of academic staff are ranked in the top 5 in the UK for the quality of their research publications (REF 2014). * Every year students also have the chance to get involved in events at the Huddersfield Literature Festival - https://www.huddlitfest.org.uk/ * We’ll get you out of the classroom on some interesting field trips. Every text can raise cultural, ethical and political issues, and we’ll give you the chance to explore them. For the language elements of your course, we’ll assess how language shapes the world we live in, and how principles like humour, power and cross-cultural relations are all dependent on the formation of language. The course is equally split between literature and language. Language is absolutely central to our lives and the world we live in. Through language we form relationships, teach our children and manage our day-to-day lives: It underpins our whole existence. On this course we explore many facets of language, including its history, diversity and structure. We explore its use in a variety of contexts including interaction, politics, humour and forensics. Our students graduate with a set of skills and knowledge that is ideal for a broad range of careers from advertising to teaching, from public relations to local government, from marketing to speech therapy and so on. ~ Liz Holt, Head of English Language, Linguistics and Modern Languages. Additional Costs: Placements The nature and suitability of your work placement is decided in consultation with your tutors. You are responsible for making your own arrangements for any travel or incurred costs in relation to the placement module, or in relation to the optional placement year if you chose to undertake one as part of your degree.
