About

This English Language diploma from The Open University UK explores human communication by focusing on the English language, its history, diversity and flexibility. 

Overview

In this English Language diploma from The Open University UK, you’ll learn what distinguishes machine language from human language and how people adapt and change their ways of communicating in multilingual and multicultural contexts. You’ll investigate how language works from the smallest units of sounds, through words, conversations and written texts. You’ll also explore English as a creative medium to express humour, thoughts and emotions. It’s not, however, designed to teach English to speakers of other languages.

Key features of the course

  • Explores the history of English, its contemporary diversity, its role as a global language and use in various parts of the world.
  • Engages in debates surrounding the historical and contemporary position of English in relation to other languages.
  • Teaches strategies that promote critical analysis and evaluation of texts, and an ability to reflect on your own language use.
  • Develops you as a competent communicator, enhancing your employability.
  • Reveals how the English language works, and how the choice of words and grammar affect the message.

Skills for career development

Employers greatly value the critical thinking, analysis, and communication skills acquired by studying an English language degree. You’ll sharpen your IT, writing, and independent thinking skills; and develop the ability to assimilate and evaluate relevant information in constructing an argument. These are key skills in complex organisations, greatly sought after in the world beyond study – whether you’re already working, volunteering, or changing career.
