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.The degree encourages and enables the students to develop the skills of linguistic analysis and their own abilities to use language adeptly and appropriately in any potential context. You will also develop a range of key transferrable skills including, among others, textual analysis, synthesis, writing and general presentation skills, which will be of clear benefit equipping you for a wide range of careers.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:**- With a wide range of modules, you can study the theories and practice of English language in detail, as well as tailor your learning to your specific interests and career ambitions. You can select a route through this degree in English Literature, Creative Writing, Drama, Education, Film, History, Journalism or Media. These carefully chosen routes will complement and enrich your understanding of your main subject, alongside broadening your skillset to give you a wider range of career paths upon graduation.- You will acquire and develop a range of skills and knowledge relating to the analysis of digital communication and the study of language through the application of digital tools and methodologies, most notably Corpus Linguistics.- Develop a global understanding of the English language through our international experience programme, DMU Global.
