Linguistics

The English Language and Linguistics integrated joint offers students the opportunity to explore a wide range of language related topics in a stimulating and multi-cultural environment. By means of high quality teaching and a flexible, responsive and vocationally relevant curriculum, students will learn about how meaning is created, not only through choices of words and grammatical structures, but through wider social and cultural contextual factors. Students will learn about the diverse ways in which languages in general, and the English language in particular, vary and change according to time, geographical location, and to factors such as the status, class or gender of the speakers. Students will develop a range of subject specific and transferable skills, including higher order conceptual and communication skills, enterprise, digital literacy and IT awareness, all of which are of immense value in graduate employment.
