Course summary

A combined English and Linguistics course offers one of the most stimulating university degrees.

Studying English will give you new ways of thinking about the world and new possibilities of expression. Studying linguistics will enable you to understand and interpret language and to learn the science behind how we communicate. Studying English and Linguistics together offers you the exciting opportunity to study both the art and science of language.

Teaching and assessment

You’ll study and learn with academics who are active researchers, experts in their field and have a passion for their subjects. Our approach to teaching will provide you with the knowledge, opportunities, and support you need to grow and succeed in a global workplace.

Teaching format

In English, you’ll learn through a programme of seminars, lectures, workshops and one-to-one consultations. We emphasize small-group teaching, which means you’ll mainly be taught in seminars.

In Linguistics, you’ll learn through a mix of seminars, lectures, practicals and labs, as well as through independent study. Class sizes decrease as you advance through the degree. Lectures are accompanied by small-group teaching in seminars and practicals.

Assessment and feedback

The Department of English and Related Literature employs a variety of assessment methods, including group presentations and closed exams, but with a strong emphasis on essay writing.

The Department of Language and Linguistic Science also uses varied assessment methods, including closed and open exams, coursework, extended essays, group oral presentations, lab reports and practicals.

Careers and skills

Studying English and Linguistics at York will provide you with numerous career possibilities. You’ll learn presentation, language and critical thinking skills during your combined degree, and gain expertise in complex analysis and research. These skills suit a wide range of careers, from law and teaching to national and local government and the creative industries.
