Applied English Language Studies - University of Huddersfield

**On this course we'll learn about language itself and about English in particular. We'll look at its nature and role in a variety of contexts and settings, giving you the chance to get a deeper understanding of what language is and how it works. The aim is not just to help you become proficient in linguistic analysis, but also to give you transferable skills that will be useful in the professional environment too.** Why Applied English Studies? - Aimed at students who do not have English as their first language. - Improve your skills in English and learn about its cultural context by approaching it as a modern foreign language. - Learn more about the English Language (e.g. its structure, history and varieties) and about Linguistics (a scientific approach to the study of language). - Explore areas that might lead to further study and a career including an introduction to TESOL (teaching English to speakers of other languages) and translation. - Opportunity to undertake work experience as part of the ‘Language in the Workplace’ module – a chance to see how the language skills you’ve learnt on the course can be applied to communication in a working environment. - Opportunities to study a modern foreign language alongside your course through our Modern Languages Programme (https://www.hud.ac.uk/inspire/mhm/languages/). - Our team of academic staff are ranked in the top 5 in the UK for the quality of their research publications (REF 2014).
