The English Language and Linguistics (Hons) programme at the Oxford Brookes University combines English Language and Linguistics and English Literature. You will be able to choose from a selection of modules from both of these courses to create a programme that is tailor made for you.


The English Language and Linguistics (Hons) programme at the Oxford Brookes University is based around four strands of study:

  • the relationship between language and identity in terms of gender, ethnicity, religion and sexuality
  • how we change the language we use according to social contexts
  • intercultural communication
  • the use of language and non-verbal communication in areas such as journalism, advertising and public relations.

You will also:

  • examine how children and adults learn language and become adept users of it
  • learn about the history of the English Language and how (and why) it has changed over time
  • explore how sounds are produced and how words are structured and created
  • discover how language analysis can assist in solving crime
  • learn about the relationship between language and thought and how language is processed in the brain.

Career prospects

Graduates in English Language and Linguistics can choose from a wide range of career paths, particularly where an international dimension might be involved.

Due to an increasingly globalised world, our working lives become ever more cross-cultural in nature as we communicate and interact with people across cultures as well as across geographical borders.

If you have an interest in people, cultures and human diversity, relevant employment sectors might include teaching, both in the UK and internationally, tourism, marketing, the media, public relations, law, and international companies and organisations.
