English Language and Linguistics and German - University of Kent

German is one of Europe's most important languages for business and culture. Worldwide, it is the second-most widely used language on the internet (W3Techs 2014). It is also frequently used as a second language in Eastern Europe, serving as a means of communication across international boundaries. Fluency in the German language, combined with knowledge of political and cultural developments in the German-speaking world, opens up career opportunities in many areas of Europe. Combining theoretical and practical elements, English Language and Linguistics explores both the structure of language and its multifaceted relationship with culture and society. The choice of topics covered is very wide, including areas such as sociolinguistics, language acquisition, syntax, semantics, pragmatics, phonetics and phonology, morphology, language learning and teaching, language impairments, literary stylistics and critical and cultural theory. You can also study creative writing and media writing.
