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 language you speak shapes the world you see; this degree helps you understand both better, and to make the connections between what you study at university and what goes on in the world beyond the classroom.
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.
We could reasonably expect our students to gain employment in any profession where the ability to communicate clearly and persuasively is at a premium: the media, publishing, advertising, marketing, public relations, teaching and the Civil Service Fast Stream.
