Course summary

Life without language is unthinkable because language is definitional to being human, and the more we understand about it, the more we understand about our nature and identity. This exciting course focuses on the properties, varieties, history, as well as acquisition and use of the English language, and how it relates to other human abilities. In studying these themes, you will study English—and language overall—as a cultural, social and psychological phenomenon.During the course, you will be given the skills and specialist knowledge required to analyse the English language from different perspectives: how it is structured and acquired, how it varies across speakers and geographic regions, how it influences the way in which we communicate with others and think about the world, and how it is used in context.You will develop hands-on experience in collecting and identifying patterns in English language data and texts, and learn to critically analyse evidence and arguments. You will also acquire key skills for employability in research methodologies, information technology, critical thinking, and written and oral communication.This course is just one of our English and Creative Writing programmes, which have risen ten places in the 2020 Guardian university league tables. The foundation year of this four-year programme aims to provide you with a range of necessary study kills for undertaking successful undergraduate learning, and it will introduce you to a range of academic study which will prepare you to progress positively onto the BA (Hons) English Language course.
