Course summary

"We live in a world governed and connected by technology. At DMU we believe that you should study the nature of the 'wired' environment and how it influences who you are. As part of our approach to digital humanities, you will have the opportunity to see how communication and language operate on web-based platforms, and how the application of digital tools and methods can deepen the knowledge of your chosen subject area. Your first year will introduce you to the study of language in general, how sounds become words and how words are put together to create meaning. You will develop your ability to take language apart as well as learn how to put it together to create clear, effective communication. Second and third year options include teaching English, a final-year work placement module and the opportunity to study material such as propaganda and interrogation, pragmatics – which looks at the gap between what we say and what we mean – psycholinguistics, and the political, social and cultural roles of language. The language you speak shapes the world you see. This degree helps you understand both better, and to make connections between what you study and what goes on in the world beyond the classroom. **Key features:*** You will study a range of topics, including words in action, a foreign language, sociolinguistics, corpus linguistics and TESOL.* Develop a global understanding of the English language through our international experience programme, DMU Global. Students have previously explored ekphrastic writing and themes of oppression in Berlin, and visited TED HQ and key literary locations in New York.* 100% of our graduates from summer 2017 are in work or further study, according to the Destinations of Leavers from Higher Education 2016-17 report.* Evolve a range of transferrable skills that are valuable to a variety of career paths. Our graduates have gone on to work at Meisei University in Tokyo, the Department of Transport, communications agencies and schools in the UK and overseas. * Visiting lecturers have included world-renowned expert of forensic linguistics Dr John Olsson, while organised trips to professional events have seen students visit the London Language Fair.* Gain workplace abilities and experience by putting your research, reasoning and communication skills into practice on a placement or extracurricular internship during your degree." -
