English Language and Politics - University of Huddersfield

**Language is central to the way all aspects of society are conducted, including politics and political systems and debates around the world. This course will enable you to investigate language using some of the techniques and frameworks of modern linguistics and help you to understand how English functions in so many diverse ways and in different contexts. You will also develop a thorough understanding of the major political and historical perspectives which underlie current debates on the nature, structure and content of politics and in various contexts.** Why English Language and Politics? - 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. - Get involved in the writing, editing and production of the popular department linguistics magazine, Babel. - Our team of English academic staff are ranked in the top 5 in the UK for the quality of their research publications (REF 2014). - You’ll have the chance to get involved in a range of extra-curricular activities. You could also benefit from guest lecturers such as MPs and political figures, and engage in student-led debates. - We encourage students to get involved with the active Student Politics Society to gain practical experience. The course aims to equip you for the real world by educating you to understand, analyse and critique the communication going on around you and to understand how it contributes to the political system. These skills are relevant to most modern careers, but can be closely linked to a wide range of careers in politics and the public sector (e.g. local government and councils).
