Communication is at the heart of everything we do as humans. Studying in the English Language and Communication (Hons) program of the Plymouth Marjon University you'll get into topics from advertising to autism, from body language to bilingualism, from creativity to cognition, from diversity to disorders, from English past to English present, from form to function and so on. This fascinating and practical degree covers the science of language and linguistics, the psychology of language and even some aspects of speech and language disorders in children and adults, to help you understand what happens and how people can be helped.
At the practical level, you’ll learn how to describe language in terms of linguistic structure, sound systems and communication theory. You will analyse what people say and the way they say it, in conversation, politics, media and advertising. If you want to learn about language, human beings and the way they interact, this degree is perfect for you!
What might you become?
You will excel in careers where strong communication is crucial. You might move into teaching, counselling or language therapy or teaching English in another country. Areas such as advertising, management and publishing need good language and good communication skills, while many other graduates work freelance or are employed as proof readers, translators or technical writers. There is also a growing need for work on ‘plain English’ documentation.
