On the English Language and Linguistics (Hons) programme at Anglia Ruskin University, you’ll dig beneath the surface of everyday language to discover the mechanics, both physical and abstract, that allow us to communicate.
Topics such as syntax, semantics and phonology will give you a sense of how we create meaning from sounds and turn that meaning into complex structures that interpret the world around us. You’ll explore how language develops and evolves through use, as well as the similarities and differences between English and other languages.
Along the way you’ll pick up important research skills, including proposal writing and data analysis, while our optional modules will allow you to explore your own interests. You can choose from career-focused topics such as teaching English and writing news stories, to more academic areas such as how images communicate meaning and how different modes of expression can create and challenge gender.
The BA (Hons) English Language and Linguistics can help you to achieve a career in an area directly related to language and linguistics, such as speech therapy or teaching. It can also help you find work in any area that requires good linguistic and analytic skills, such as public relations, marketing and other areas of communication.
