Your first year in the English Language (Single Honours) (Hons) course at De Montfort University will introduce you to the study of language in general, how sounds become words, and how words are put together to create meaning; you will develop your ability to take language apart, and through your study, you will also learn how to put it together to create clear effective communication.
You live in a world governed and connected by technology; at DMU we believe that you should study the nature of the 'wired' environment and how it influences who you are. As part of our 'Digital Humanities' strategy, you will have the opportunity to see how communication and language operate online, and how the application of digital tools and methods can deepen the knowledge of your chosen subject area.
Later years offer a module in teaching English, a final year work placement module and the opportunity to study material such as propaganda and interrogation, pragmatics (looking at the gap between what we say and what we mean), psycholinguistics and the political, social, and cultural roles of language.
The graduates have high-level linguistic, reasoning and analytical skills, making them very employable. We develop our students’ information analysis and presentation skills to produce extremely articulate, adaptable, professional communicators who can operate with ease in any setting and with any group of people.
