Our LINGUISTICS course will help you to analyse the way language constructs and constrains meaning, which will help you to carry out your own research during your third year of study. HISTORY will introduce you to diverse peoples, nations and ideas from medieval and early modern right through to contemporary history within Britain and across top the Americas, Asia and the Far East. Both subjects will help you to think critically, develop an open mind and develop excellent analytical skills. Both subjects will help you to communicate more creatively and academically and will help you to develop strong analytical skills.

Linguistics is the study of human language. The course is in the UK's Top 20 for student satisfaction (NSS 2019). This course will equip you with the tools for analysing language and for conducting your own research. You will become aware of the immense power that our language has to construct and to constrain meaning.
