English Language and Communication - Plymouth Marjon University

Communication is at the heart of everything we do as humans. Studying English language and communication delves into topics from autism to alliteration, from body language to bilingualism, from creativity to cognition, from diversity to disorders, from English past to English present, and from form to function. You will analyse what people say and the way they say it - a key skill in persuasive texts in politics, media and advertising. This degree is perfect for you to learn about language, human beings the way they interact. **Why this course at Marjon?** • Focus on how language can be used to change or improve people’s experiences. • Placements to give you confidence in the work environment – for example, with schools, businesses, refugees or care homes. • Includes elective modules from across the University. **What might I become?** You will excel in careers where strong communication is crucial. You might move into teaching, counselling or language therapy or teaching English in another country.
