BA English Language for Education / Overview
Year of entry: 2017
This is a unique degree, focusing specifically on English language and its connections with education. It will provide you with an understanding of the current issues and theories within the fields of both English language and education, as well as seeing how the two interrelate.
You will explore language use, the nature of spoken and written communication, educational issues, and how language reflects and impacts upon wider society and culture. Maybe you have a strong interest in how people learn, either culturally, socially or psychologically. Or maybe you love studying contemporary English language and want to find out how it can be applied across a range of real-world settings. You will also explore the psychology and sociology of learning, as well as examining public policy in relation to issues of access, fairness and social justice.
We pride ourselves on close staff-student relationships, small-group teaching and guided, one-to-one supervision. You are encouraged to develop knowledge in areas that are of specific interest to you, through selecting optional course units and your choice of a research project for your final-year dissertation.
Fees for entry in 2017 have not yet been set. For entry in 2016 the tuition fees were £9,000 per annum for home/EU students, and are expected to increase slightly for 2017 entry.
