Indulge your passion for English by exploring the nature of human language in an inspiring city with a vibrant cultural scene.

Course overview

This three-year English Language BA Honours degree encourages you to explore language. You'll investigate how English has developed over time and how it's used to mark social, regional and stylistic distinctions.

You will learn from subject experts, world-leading researchers in literary and linguistic studies and internationally acclaimed writers throughout your degree.

You'll be able to immerse yourself in local culture at venues such as Seven Stories, The Wordsworth Trust and the Literary and Philosophical Society, while your degree study examines:

  • how English is acquired and develops in the mind
  • the grammatical structure of English and general phonetics/phonology
  • social and historical context of variation in English
  • methodologies for studying the human language faculty

Teaching methods

You can normally expect to spend around 10 hours per week attending lectures, seminars, workshops and film screenings. You also spend around 25 hours per week on class preparation, reading, writing, and other kinds of independent research recommended by your tutor.
