Course summary

This degree has been designed for students who want to explore unique perspectives on the world and have a keen interest in the power of language. PHILOSOPHY gives you the ability to question the world in a critical manner which is a vital skill which many of today's leading employers are looking for. LINGUISTICS at NTU will help you to analyse language and explore the power that language has to construct and constrain meaning. It will enhance and directly influence your understanding of human communications, identity and how language constructs and constrains meaning in different cultures and societies. You won't need any prior understanding of foreign languages, grammar or of any technical terminology as this will taught on the course. Philosophy at NTU aims to develop your powers of argument, critical thinking and conceptual analysis through the search for answers to ultimate questions. This course differs from the typical philosophy courses on offer at most other universities as it is not a course in the history of ideas. The course is organised around some of the philosophical problems faced by today's decision-makers in their professional lives. In general, this course examines the interface between philosophical ideas and everyday life, and has been designed in order to help you think more clearly and more critically about the world in which you live. Linguistics is the study of human language. The course is joint 3rd in the UK for student satisfaction (NSS 2020). This course will equip you with the tools for analysing language and for conducting your own research. You will become aware of the immense power that our language has to construct meaning in societies. You'll examine the latest developments in clinical linguistics, media discourse, child language acquisition and research in languages and gender. This joint honours degree will provide you with a breadth of skills which many of today's leading employers expect undergraduates to have. This course will teach you how to question the world and search for answers to ultimate questions which will help you to gain detailed analytical skills, as well as develop your powers of argument and critical thinking. Many recent graduates have discovered careers in journalism, broadcasting, film and television script-writing, civil service, law and public relations. Some of our undergraduates have pursued careers as speech language therapists across the world. 100% of our joint honours Linguistics students are in work or further study within six months of finishing their degree (DLHE 2016/17).
