This degree develops your understanding of language as a social and a psychological phenomenon. On this course you will have opportunities to explore language from two perspectives. The English language strand of the degree provides you with an understanding of the fundamentals of English and its historical development, examining how language shapes society and society shapes language. The theoretical tools learned on the linguistics element of the course will enable you to engage with a scientific study of language and explore human cognitive abilities to successfully communicate with each other. Option modules allow you to choose your own pathway through the course. You may choose a theoretical route with options that deepen your understanding of your two subject areas; or should you have a more creative edge, you can tailor your degree by taking practice-based modules, in journalism or creative writing.
