English Language - University of Huddersfield

**Language is how we make sense of the world around us. It makes so much possible: communication, employment, relationships, even society itself. We’ll look at language and how it shapes us, giving you the chance to get a deeper understanding of what language is and how it works.** Why English Language? - State-of-the-art facilities including a forensic linguistics lab, a research and resource centre and conference labs. - Opportunity to take a five-week placement 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. - Get involved in the writing, editing and production of the popular department linguistics magazine, Babel - https://babelzine.co.uk/ - 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). In your first year, we aim to develop your analytic and descriptive skills to assess English language as it is written and spoken. By giving you a thorough grounding in the basics, you’ll then have the opportunity to move on to more advanced linguistic study. 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.
