If you wish to study two academic subjects in depth our Joint Honours degree programmes are a great way to do this. This programme enables you to study language from a broad range of perspectives, including 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. As well as studying how speakers and writers use language, you may also study social attitudes to language, and the way language choices can express identities and cultural values. Taking a foreign language as part of your degree generally commands excellent job prospects and you will become more self-confident and independent and aware of a wider world, where you can operate in another culture and through another language. We are confident that your year in France, as well as your time in York, will be unforgettable and transformational!
