Course summary

On this course you will learn about, understand and interpret many aspects of human language. Combining these two, complementary, subjects enables you to explore of the way in which language abilities develop, while also acquiring knowledge and capabilities in the use of English language. You will examine key issues such as how our language changes according to the context in which it is being used, and how men's and women's language use differs.Linguistics is the study of how language works and is used. Linguists look at not only how people learn, understand and speak language, but also at the way different people use language differently. Linguistics has a theoretical dimension but also an applied dimension – such as language technology, language policy and language in education. You will learn about the ways in which different languages are different or similar, the ways in which society and language go hand-in-hand, and the functions and status that different languages have across the world.The English Language is the most widely-spoken language in the world. Studying English Language means looking at the way English has changed over the centuries, considering what will become of it in the future, comparing English use in different parts of the globe, and considering important practical aspects of English such as the hundreds of millions of people worldwide learning English as an additional or foreign language.‘Placement Year’ and 'International Experience Year’ options are available for this course. You will have the opportunity to fully consider these options when you have started your course at Bangor and can make an application for a transfer onto such a pathway at the appropriate time. You can find more information about these options on our website and if you have any questions, please get in touch.If you don’t have the required qualifications for this degree-level course or are looking to re-enter education after time away from study, then a Foundation Year Programme might be the right choice for you.
