In what ways are an informal conversation, a consultation with your doctor and a political news interview similar? How has globalisation affected languages in today’s world? How has social and geographical mobility given rise to the formation of new accents and dialects of English? Do men speak differently from women? BA English Language and Sociology enables you to apply the study of the structure of modern society to sociolinguistic concerns such as accent and dialect variation, multilingualism and language in the media. Your third year spent abroad gives you the chance to gain more experience and become even more employable. In your final year you have the opportunity to tailor your degree by choosing some modules that are best suited to your interests.
