Exploring the power of language
Our programme covers a range of approaches which enable you to describe and analyse language at all levels, from the individual sounds of English through words, phrases and sentences to stretches of written and spoken language.
It brings a new dimension to areas you may have encountered already, such as language and power, stylistics and Gricean pragmatics. It also introduces you to other branches of language including psycholinguistics, cognitive pragmatics and literacy.
In addition, we will help you become familiar with significant historical, social and global varieties of language as well as the nature of linguistic representation and the construction of meaning.

In the second and third stages of your programme, you will have increasing control over the modules you study and the assignment topics you pursue. We provide a broad choice of optional modules to allow you to specialise in your particular areas of interest.

Conduct your own research
The study of English Language is based on observation and experiment. As you progress through this programme, you will learn how to undertake your own hands-on research into key questions surrounding language. You will design research projects, collect and analyse spoken or written linguistic data, and draw conclusions.

In stage two of the course, you will collaborate with other students on a research initiative and present your findings as a conference poster, which you will display to the group and discuss with the staff members who are assessing you.
