Course summary

This English Language and Politics BA (Hons) course enables you to study both English Language and Politics equally at the same level. Don't worry, studying joint honours doesn't mean more work. You'll study the same number of credits as a single honours student, but just take fewer modules in each of the subjects. There are lots of reasons why students choose a joint honours qualification. Just some include: that you have two subject areas of interest, that you want to explore something new alongside a core subject area or that you want to keep your career options open to a range of professions.On this exciting and innovative Joint Honours programme you will also cover a broad range of contemporary issues in language. The course will introduce you to contemporary linguistic approaches to the study of language, aspects of linguistic structure and language variation in English. The introductory modules look at issues such as how our language changes according to the context in which it is being used, how men's and women's language use differs, how we acquire language and how and why it breaks down. You will also explore the history and diversity of the English Language, examine the impact of new media, such as the Internet, email and text messaging, develop your own web design skills and reflect on your own language use. You will gain the critical understanding, cultural awareness and analytical skills to prepare you for a career in a wide variety of sectors.The Politics programme is stimulating, interesting and contemporary, and quickly develops students' own powers of analysis and problem solving, research skills, critical thinking, team work and interpersonal skills. It is designed to help you to form a deeper understanding of the Politics of Britain and the wider world, whilst exploring the world of the political, within the complex power relationships of contemporary society. In the first year you will take a common core of introductory modules designed to familiarise yourself with differing approaches to the study of Politics, to help you understand key theories, concepts and ideas and to understand some of the key debates and issues in the world around us. At second and third level students can choose from a range of modules to reflect developing interests and potential career choices.
