This is a stimulating and challenging course that focuses on the study of English Language. If you are interested about the ways in which we use language to communicate, then this course is perfect for you. You will learn about the ways in which journalists craft language to represent topical issues, study how we reinforce human relationships through spoken discourse and consider the extent to which language reflects its spoken, electronic or formal written context.

The course will prepare you with the research skills including critical reading, data analysis, evaluation, the ability to develop and sustain arguments and a number of different writing skills which are invaluable for both further study and future employment.

English Language can form a basis for further specialist study at degree level. It is good preparation for anyone interested in Journalism, Law and the Media.
