During this course you will spend two-thirds of your time studying English Language and one third studying English Literature. The introductory modules for English Language degree look at issues such as how our language changes according to the context in which it is being used, how men's and women's language use differs, how we acquire language and and how and why it continues to evolve. The English Literature element of this degree offers you the opportunity to study texts and authors from an exceptionally wide range of English and American literature. These works are studied in a variety of ways, some emphasising, for example, the social or political context in which a text was produced; others are studied with a more linguistic or stylistic approach.
Students will take 4 modules in the English language and 2 in English literature. Compulsory 20-credit modules in the School of Linguistics and English Language: Introduction to language: how to be a linguist; the different subfields of linguistics; introduce basic linguistic terminology; academic skills; introduction to syntax and morphology: the structure of words and sentences and how it is analysed in different theories; English and society or language and culture: how language varies according to dialect and social aspects; the relationship between language and cultural aspects such as language policy and bilingualism. Years 2 and 3: Compulsory 2nd year modules will include such topics as phonology, syntax, semantics, and bilingualism. In year 3 students will get a choice from a wide range of linguistics and English literature modules. There are also Welsh-medium modules available as options in years 2 and 3.
