English Language and Literature - University of Huddersfield

**Reading an inspiring work of literature isn’t just a pleasure, it can help build up useful skills and understanding too. Combine that with a close study of language – the building blocks that go into the written and spoken word – and you could develop an extremely analytical mind and some highly transferable skills that employers are looking for.** Why English Language and Literature? - 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/ - English Literature is in the top 3 English departments in the UK for student satisfaction (NSS 2018). - Our team of academic staff are ranked in the top 5 in the UK for the quality of their research publications (REF 2014). - Every year students also have the chance to get involved in events at the Huddersfield Literature Festival - https://www.huddlitfest.org.uk/ - We’ll get you out of the classroom on some interesting fieldtrips. Every text can raise cultural, ethical and political issues, and we’ll give you the chance to explore them. For the language elements of your course, we’ll assess how language shapes the world we live in, and how principles like humour, power and cross-cultural relations are all dependent on the formation of language. The course is equally split between literature and language.
