The study of language is the study of people and society. Language underpins the relationships we have, the identities we project, how we are perceived and our place in the social system. Explore the theories and frameworks of language and how they're applied to the real world, then examine the areas that interest you most. You also have the opportunity to gain professional experience through work-based modules. Learn how to analyse language across a range of contexts from a global perspective. Explore the mechanics of language and how it links to society through themes such as identity, power, gender, sexuality, technology and the arts. Gain professional experience by selecting work-based modules. By passing three teaching English to speakers of other languages (TESOL) option modules, you can also gain the Trinity Certificate, which qualifies you to teach English abroad.
