Course description

The Deaf Studies and Linguistics integrated joint offers students the chance to explore a range of social and 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 to identify and understand the challenges faced by deaf people, and gain a detailed knowledge of how sign and spoken languages work. Students will have opportunities to consider a variety of issues and perspectives surrounding working with deaf people. They will study current policies, laws, procedures and practices to develop professional strategies useful for their future working lives. They will also learn how meaning is created, not only through choices of signs and words and grammatical structures, but through wider social and cultural contextual factors. The programme 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.The course fosters cooperative and independent work, as well as critical reflection.

Modules

Modules include: deaf blind communication; guiding policies and practice; critical issues affecting the lives of deaf/disabled people; supporting inclusive practices for future professional life.

Employment prospects for graduates of this subject

Sources: DLHE & HECSU
This subject covers a group of related subjects, like audiology and speech science. The most common job for graduates from this group is speech therapy, and about a quarter had studied audiology. There are not many audiology graduates each year in the UK, and they usually go on to jobs as – you guessed it – audiologists (mostly in hospitals). Speech science or therapy graduates often go straight into speech therapy jobs when they graduate, although you don’t absolutely have to be a speech therapist if you take the course. Graduates from last year in this subject went into a surprisingly wide range of jobs – but were largely in health or childcare roles.

Employment prospects for graduates of this subject

Sources: DLHE & HECSU
Linguists are in demand across the economy, from marketing to IT, so this type of degree has a better than average employment rate. Graduates from language subjects are, not surprisingly, more likely than most others to get jobs working overseas, with Teaching English as a Foreign Language (TEFL) a popular option. Linguists are particularly likely to get jobs in marketing, finance, education and in management, but remember – whilst employers say they rate language skills, you need to have them as part of a whole package of good skills.
