|Program Size:||Large (over 25 students)|
|Program Description:||This programme is primarily intended for students with a professional interest in the English Language. It is designed in such a way as to promote awareness and understanding of the English language and its uses in various everyday communication contexts and to develop an understanding of the principles of applied linguistics which underlie sound practical skills in relation to the professional use of the English language.
The programme shares common ground with our other degree programme in Year One where all first year students take modules in language and communication. This degree scheme then focuses on a description of English language including its grammar, vocabulary and pronunciation, together with a range of relevant studies in discourse, sociolinguistics, the media and gender. These do not assume any previous knowledge of linguistics or linguistic terminology. The modules examine how languages are organised, how they vary and change and how we exchange meanings on an everyday basis. In addition to these two first-year subjects students also choose a third subject which can either be from within the School or from another Humanities School.
In the second and third years the programme focuses on a description of English language, including its grammar, vocabulary and pronunciation, together with a range of relevant studies in discourse, sociolinguistics, the media and gender. The programme includes the development of language skills in relation to career opportunities such as teaching, language and speech therapy, business, public relations, media, language research and digital language.
