Course summary

Do you have a passion for language? Do you enjoy expressing yourself in words? If you’re looking to take your talent further, then we’ll give you the chance to see what you could achieve. Why English Language with Creative Writing? * State-of-the-art facilities including a forensic linguistics lab, a research and resource centre and conference labs. * Opportunity to take a five-week placement as part of the ‘Language in the Workplace’ module – a chance to see how the language skills you’ve learnt on the course can be applied to communication in a working environment. * Get involved in the writing, editing and production of the popular department linguistics magazine, Babel - https://babelzine.co.uk/ * Opportunities to establish yourself as a professional writer through our Grist Creative Writing Project - http://mhm.hud.ac.uk/grist/ * Our team of academic staff are ranked in the top 5 in the UK for the quality of their research publications (REF 2014). * Every year students also have the chance to get involved in events at the Huddersfield Literature Festival. * We’ll get you out of the classroom on some interesting field trips. On the course you’ll be taught by tutors who are actively involved in writing and getting their work published. They’re passionate about their subject, and will focus on giving you the opportunity to explore your own talents. You’ll be encouraged to develop your writing across a whole range of creative media, including theatre, film, television and radio as well as fiction and poetry. Language is absolutely central to our lives and the world we live in. Through language we form relationships, teach our children and manage our day-to-day lives: It underpins our whole existence. On this course we explore many facets of language, including its history, diversity and structure. We explore its use in a variety of contexts including interaction, politics, humour and forensics. Our students graduate with a set of skills and knowledge that is ideal for a broad range of careers from advertising to teaching, from public relations to local government, from marketing to speech therapy and so on. ~ Liz Holt, Head of English Language, Linguistics and Modern Languages. Additional Costs: Placements The nature and suitability of your work placement is decided in consultation with your tutors. You are responsible for making your own arrangements for any travel or incurred costs in relation to the placement module, or in relation to the optional placement year if you chose to undertake one as part of your degree.
