Course summary

On our English Language and Linguistics BA you will study the sounds, words and structures of English, as well as the role language plays in different institutional, professional and social contexts. You will undertake linguistic projects which involve collecting and analysing data and you will develop a thorough understanding of the relationship between language, society and culture; the role of language in the media and social media; health communications; language and education; language and the arts and language and the mind. Key benefits

  • Study language in the heart of a truly multicultural, multilingual capital. You'll be based right next door to the National Theatre, Southbank Centre and BFI, offering countless opportunities to see language in action at internationally renowned institutions.
  • The chance to tailor module choices across five broad themes: media, arts, education, mind and society.
  • Get involved in the numerous stimulating seminar series and events that we run throughout the year.
  • Classes are small and welcoming, taught by approachable and supportive staff with international reputations for world-leading research in linguistics and communication.
  • London is the perfect place for your studies - there are over 300 languages spoken in the city so if you want to look at language use in multilingual communities you really won’t find anywhere better!
  • Development of skills that are valuable for a wide range of professions, such as publishing, advertising, journalism, public relations, speech and language therapy, teaching and research.
