English language, linguistics and foreign languages

Subject intro

English language and linguistics

It’s easy to take your own language for granted, but the BA(Hons) English Language and Linguistics course allows you to explore it from every angle.

We’ll teach you linguistics where you’ll study language from a scientific viewpoint. You'll immerse yourself in every aspect of language, from the fascinating ways children develop their language skills, to how it evolves to reflect our changing society.

Foreign languages

In the global world of today, we believe it is becoming increasingly important to study a second language. Speaking a second language, as well as having a qualification, will give you a competitive edge when job hunting. We offer a choice of five languages and most of our courses offer the possibility to study one.
