Course summary

The Combined Honours programme offers you an opportunity to study two subjects at degree level:**English:**English is a well-established humanities discipline, which explores the role of the written word in defining and transforming human experience. The modern discipline of English is rooted in the study of literature and the language in which it is written. Students of English can expect to study all major periods and forms of literature and to learn how to analyse literary texts by drawing on disciplines such as history, sociology and politics. The study of English develops strong critical thinking and communication skills, attributes that are highly valued in humanities graduates by employers. At the Manchester campus, the English department has access to a community of internationally renowned writers and critics through the Manchester Writing School, one of the most successful of its kind in the UK. Its Creative Director is Carol Ann Duffy DBE (Poet Laureate 2009-2019). You will develop the necessary skills in critical thinking and communication that are of value to graduates entering a wide array of career paths.**Linguistics:**If you are interested in the way in which we communicate and how it can influence people, studying linguistics will help you unravel how language is inextricably linked to who we are. You will also experience the theoretical and applied use of linguistics in social, educational, and practical environments and contexts. We have been providing professional language courses for more than 30 years and our staff are nationally, and in many cases internationally, recognised experts in their field. Our strong local, national and global links will help to enhance your study and future employment opportunities.This course has a Foundation Year available.**Features and Benefits**- Allows you to combine the study of two subjects.- Choose the balance of your subjects in Years 2 and 3 of the degree.- Workshops and readings by published writers including Carol Ann Duffy DBE (Poet Laureate 2009-2019), who is a professor of poetry at the Writing School.- We pride ourselves on offering intellectually challenging programmes of study in a friendly and student-centred environment. - We coach practical skills for work including communication skills, presentation skills, essay and report writing, summary skills, interview and questionnaire techniques.
