Combine your love of English literature with learning how language itself works. Learn how language develops and evolves, how it conditions our responses to the world, and the ways in which we use it to persuade, inspire and entertain. Studying linguistics and English literature is a unique opportunity for students who have a love of English, both written and how the language itself is structured. Your linguistics modules will provide you with sound technical and analytical skills and a deeper understanding of language. Your literature classes will explore some of the most interesting and profound ways in which the English language has been used by poets, novelists and dramatists.
