Course summary

This English Language for Speech and Language Therapy degree has been developed specifically for those aiming for a future career in Speech and Language Therapy (SLT). While this degree does not lead to SLT certification upon graduation, the aim and goals of this undergraduate course is to help build a strong foundation for further postgraduate study and subsequent certification as a speech language therapist. You will become proficient in understanding how English works, why and how it is used, and where it has come from. You will also develop extensive knowledge of English linguistics and the areas of general linguistic theory that underpin study in this field.In studying English Language for Speech and Language Therapy, you will explore how English works, and also you will learn about relevant aspects of linguistics such as: the grammatical structure (e.g., word order, sounds, meaning); the history of English; dialects and social variation; social, educational and cultural aspects; global English, and more. You will look at the way English has changed over the centuries, considering what will become of it in the future, comparing English use in different parts of the globe, and considering important practical aspects of English such as the hundreds of millions of people worldwide learning English as an additional or foreign language.Additionally, you will study subjects which will provide a foundation that is suitable if you want to pursue a career in speech therapy after you graduate, including comprehensive training in phonetics and speech sciences, aspects of cognitive and developmental psychology and considerations of the methods, approaches, techniques and issues relevant to speech and language therapy.‘Placement Year’ and 'International Experience Year’ options are available for this course. You will have the opportunity to fully consider these options when you have started your course at Bangor and can make an application for a transfer onto such a pathway at the appropriate time. You can find more information about these options on our website and if you have any questions, please get in touch.If you don’t have the required qualifications for this degree-level course or are looking to re-enter education after time away from study, then a Foundation Year Programme might be the right choice for you. Please see English Language and English Literature (with Foundation Year) QQCF.
