About the Course
This degree will interest students who are fascinated by English, from discovering key linguistic frameworks to exploring exciting forms of literature and experimenting with creative writing. It is also flexible, allowing you to design a course that best fits your strengths, learning style and particular area of interest, choosing from a wide range of units and four specific pathways: TESOL; teacher training; legal (incorporating forensic linguistics) and clinical (such as speech and language therapy).
In your first year, you are introduced to the core skills you need for the degree: an introduction to ways of reading prose, poetry and drama as well as key concepts in linguistics and phonetics. In your second and third years, you build on these core skills while also choosing from a range of optional units that will really capture your imagination.
