English Language and Linguistics (with a modern language) at Manchester Metropolitan University - UCAS

Course summary

If you are interested in the way in which we communicate and how it can influence people, studying linguistics will help you unravel how language is inextricably linked to who we are. Linguistics is devoted to the scientific study of natural language and concerned with how languages evolve, are structured and what they have in common. It also examines how languages are acquired and used. Our department is home to a wealth of research expertise and that expertise is transferred directly into the classroom. You could be learning from academics who are actively involved in having a real-world impact, from forensic linguistics, to accent mapping, to the language used to describe endometriosis pain. With this expertise here for you to draw on, your learning is not only relevant, but it's also cutting edge, and our strong local, national and global links will help you to enhance your study and future employment opportunities. After your second year you can choose to progress to your final year or take an optional year-out undertaking a placement or studying abroad.* Both are great options to get more experience. We’ll help you arrange everything and give you all the support you’ll need. In this degree you will also take a number of units relating to your chosen modern language. Adding a modern language to your degree means you can develop as a more effective communicator, acquire linguistic skills and develop a wider cultural awareness. You can choose from French, Spanish, Modern Standard Arabic, Mandarin Chinese, and Japanese. This degree focuses on linguistics and English language, if you are interested in linguistics and English literature, we offer BA (Hons) Linguistics and English. This course has a foundation year available. *Placement and/or study abroad options may be available, potentially extending the duration of study up to 4 years. Study abroad will be subject to any international travel restrictions and/or availability. Features and Benefits
