English Language and Linguistics at York St John University - UCAS

Course summary

This course lets you explore language from different perspectives. When you join us, we will focus on helping you develop your academic skills. You will also learn linguistic analysis and explore debates on language use and the historical development of language. In your first year you will also be able to select an optional module that interests you. Study the basics of British Sign Language, or choose to explore multilingualism. As you progress through your degree you will explore more varied and complex linguistic theories. You can use our specialist linguistics lab to analyse language data and apply your theoretical knowledge to everyday examples of language. You can choose the topics you want to study and specialise in an area of linguistic study you are interested in. This could include an exploration of:

  • Language, gender and sexuality
  • Forensic linguistics
  • Speech and language pathology.
  • Your learning will focus on applying your theoretical knowledge to data you have gathered. This will help you explain how how linguistics applies to everyday situations.
We also offer you the opportunity to study for the certificate in teaching English to speakers of other languages (CELTA) for free. It is recognised around the world and trains you to teach English around the world. You will need to apply and attend an interview before you are accepted onto the CELTA course. Join a vibrant community of linguists and take advantage of events from visiting professionals. Get involved in staff research as a volunteer or paid researcher.
