At the University of Westminster, we train competent linguists in modern languages ready to enter graduate employment. We place particular emphasis on employability and the contemporary cultural context, and offer high-quality teaching in all language skills.
The Arabic and English Language (Honours) degree is only available to beginner or 'false beginner' entrants – false beginners are students who may be able to read the Arabic script, and/or have the equivalent to one or two years' part-time study. Please note that we may need to test you to determine your entry point.
English Language focuses on the relationship between language and non-literary and literary texts, and on the history of the English language and the ways in which it currently varies around the British Isles and the world as a global language. You will develop your understanding of the English language and, at a wider level, the ways in which it reflects and contributes to wider meanings in society. You will also have the opportunity to consider the theoretical tools of both literary analysis and language research in detail.
The Careers and Employability Service is here to support you to achieve your full potential.
With a growing network of over 3,000 employers around the world and a team of experienced careers consultants, we provide you with a variety of opportunities to work and develop new skills. As a University of Westminster student, you’ll have access to our services throughout your studies and after you graduate.
