This course will give you the opportunity to experience teaching from across two areas of the School of Arts, Languages and Cultures, bringing together expertise across a wide range of subjects. You will be taken on a broadly chronological journey of English Literature from the Anglo Saxon period through to the present day. In addition, the course will introduce you to the study of the unique human faculty of language and to the investigation of the world's languages. You will explore a number of fascinating topics such as the ways in which dialects differ, how languages arise, change and die, how children acquire their first language, differences between the speech of men and women, how we communicate as individuals and within groups, and what happens when speakers of different languages come into contact. You will also discover how language can be used to shape and manipulate ideas and opinions, looking in detail at how language and thought interact in fields such as politics and advertising. You will practise key transferable skills such as essay writing and how to give a presentation.
You will be able to apply to spend one semester studying abroad during the second year of your degree. Exchange partners are offered through the Erasmus or the Worldwide Exchange scheme.
