Course summary

Journalism:

The Roehampton programme is tailored to prepare you for the modern media industry. We offer hands-on, practical modules that focus on the skills employers want.

As you learn how to research, report and develop a story, you will also be trained in how to present it in the most compelling way, using industry-standard digital tools. You will have the opportunity to focus on the subjects and formats that interest you most and to develop your own multimedia projects, such as podcasts or investigative reports. You will also learn how to target your work for different audiences.

Career options

You could go on to work as a news reporter, writer, editor or producer, or in another role on a local, national or international publication, radio, television or online media.

English Language & Linguistics:

Our BA English Language and Linguistic degree was rated as excellent for the quality of its teaching, and its practical approach to linguistics, by the Higher Education Funding Council for England.

If you’re intrigued by how meaning is communicated through language or want to gain a deeper understanding of linguistic structure, this course is perfect for you.

You will learn how language works, how sounds combine to form words, and words to form sentences, and how people use language in various contexts and for different purposes. From the spoken to the written, from the internet to politics, you will explore language in all its shapes and sizes.

Linguists are concerned with the formal structure of language and with its functions in society. From the sound’s children make, to the way people speak to the elderly; from media spin, to everyday conversations, the language around us contains hints as to its own development and its role in creating the society we live in.
