Overview

Develop the confidence to apply your knowledge through practical exercises and projects.

You’ll gain the confidence and skills to analyse the way language is used in society, looking at social interaction, digital media, political and commercial discourses, literature and the creative arts.

At this English Language and Linguistics (Honours) programme from Leeds Trinity University, you’ll explore the history of the English language and how language varies in today’s society, as well as covering practical topics such as how children acquire language and methods for teaching English to speakers of other languages. We’ll give you an insight into more specialised areas of linguistic expertise, teaching you how to apply a range of research and analytical methods to language in use.

You’ll have the chance to broaden your perspective on language with optional modules in Spanish: Language and Culture, Shakespearean Drama or Constructions of Gender. We’ll also give you the chance to take part in creative writing workshops, in which you’ll produce your own creative writing and learn how to give and receive criticism.

Career

You'll be qualified for a wide range of careers where knowledge about language, and alertness to language use, will be an asset. Our graduates work in teaching and education, media, the public sector, journalism, marketing, PR and communications. You'll also be well-prepared for the postgraduate study you'll need to complete if you want to become an English teacher.
