The BA English Language and Literature is an innovative threefold degree programme that is comprised of English language teaching methodology, English literature and linguistics modules. The students will study the linguistic systems underlying language, exploring in detail how the language is structured, acquired, used and taught. In addition, the relationship between text, language, reader and author, society, economy, politics, culture and the individual will be explored.
The courses of the linguistics component aim to provide students with a thorough grounding of the principles underpinning the study of language and the diversity of linguistic study. The teaching modules aim to provide students with knowledge and skills relevant to teaching English with an emphasis on classroom management and the use of technology. The courses in literature in English target the critical analysis of literary texts and films of different historical periods, geographical locations and genres.
