Choosing a language degree at UEA means taking your skills as a linguist and a communicator to a new level. Studying for a BA in French, Spanish or Japanese, you’ll explore translation, language trends and communication, guided by experts in the field. Perhaps you have an interest in the role of language and intercultural communication in today’s globalised world, or wish to explore current affairs and cultural matters in both English and foreign-language media. Whatever your goals, you’ll graduate as a sophisticated communicator, able to present ideas and perspectives with perfect cultural pitch. You’ll be able to follow past students into professions from media and marketing to international banking, translation, interpreting and journalism. On this BA you’ll not only become an experienced speaker of your chosen language but gain an excellent understanding of other societies and cultures. Presentation skills are increasingly important today, so we spend time focusing on these: you’ll become proficient at speaking from notes, improvising and structuring arguments coherently. Through your year abroad you’ll gain unique intercultural awareness, resourcefulness and confidence. These skills are greatly sought after by employers. You’ll also make valuable contacts, building your international network. You’ll learn in small classes from a team of native speakers and experts in language, translation and intercultural communication. As well as a core module to develop important tools for your degree, you can choose other topics to complement your learning. You might study the issues surrounding translation, or the way language works in society and the media. Or even take an additional language, such as Arabic, British Sign Language or Mandarin Chinese. You’ll learn from contemporary material rather than literary or historical texts, so everything you study is relevant and up-to-date. Your third year is spent immersed in study, work and life in a country where your honours language is spoken. This is a chance to develop your academic and language skills, make new connections, and gain experiences that can only be achieved by living abroad. In your final year you’ll refine your proficiency in advanced modules, and can hone your professional skills in courses on topics such as interpreting or subtitling, or pursue a topic of your choice in a dissertation.
With a wonderfully diverse range of courses and superb extra-curricular clubs and societies run by one of the most dynamic student unions in the country, UEA is a great place to both live and learn. Located in the beautiful city of Norwich it becomes no wonder UEA is consistently one of the best universities for student satisfaction.
