Education Studies and English Language with Foundation Year - York St John University

If you wish to study two academic subjects in depth our Joint Honours degree programmes are a great way to do this. Combining Education Studies and English Language degree programmes at York St John University provides you with the opportunity to study language from a broad range of perspectives, whilst also exploring how humans learn in a wide range of settings and institutions. Studying Language you will explore the way speech is articulated, how language is structured and related to meaning, and how it relates to speakers’ intentions and purposes in social interaction. Alongside this Education Studies gives you the opportunity to look at an area of human experience that initially seems obvious, but is full of hidden meanings, twists and turns. Central to this aspect of the programme is the examination of the idea that learning can take place in many different locations and many of these will be examined and evaluated. This route offers you a four year (full-time) degree course, which will include opportunities for you to engage with the subject area of your choice, to select from a range of subjects to broaden your knowledge and understanding, and will provide structured study skills support as you build your confidence to study at degree level. You will be taught alongside other students studying the Foundation Year from Social Sciences, Languages & Linguistics, Education, Religion & Philosophy and Media. The Foundation Year is delivered across three 10 week terms. Where possible we focus teaching on a single day, to permit flexibility, and give you plenty of time to engage in other supported learning activities and enjoy the range of resources and activities available to you. Levels 1-3 are timetabled across the full week and run across two semesters. You will have the opportunity to explore a variety of academic disciplines, encountering a wide range of subjects and ideas. You will engage in a range of teaching and learning activities, including lectures, seminars, group work, workshops and online learning. Passing your first year guarantees progression onto any of our undergraduate degrees offered with an integrated Foundation Year.
