You will examine where English has come from and how it may evolve in an era of global change and technological innovation. You will discover how it works, both as a complex system for embodying ideas, emotions and beliefs, and as a means of influencing, persuading and moving others. You will develop a set of linguistic and analytical skills, which will help you become a highly-skilled communicator.
