About this program

The English Language & Linguistics programme aims to educate you, excite you and empower you. Let’s do the education bit first. Everyone uses language, but not everyone knows about it - for example, why we have certain words and phrases; how we learn language; why our language abilities sometimes fail us; why people might have different views about what is correct; how language varies… If you choose to study our English Language & Linguistics degree, you will learn about all these aspects, and more. But we also want to excite you. Our staff are real enthusiasts. We live and breathe language, and we want you to share our passion for the subject. Of all the complimentary things our students say about us, the most frequent comment is that our own fascination for our subject area really comes across to students and helps them to do well. We are a very experienced team of people who are highly qualified academically, but also friendly and accessible who understand the nature of learning and teaching. Knowing about language, and being enthusiastic about it, is empowering. It means you are much more likely to be an effective language user, because you understand others’ meanings and are thoughtful about your own. To be in control of the meanings you express is a very powerful position, regardless of whether you exercise your language skills in workplace contexts, or in personal relationships.
