Course content

You'll receive a high quality education, based on the teaching and research strengths of a well-established team of scholars involved in English linguistics and interaction studies.

We’ll help you gain a systematic and broad understanding of key aspects of intercultural communication, with the particular advantage that you will be merging your academic knowledge with practical analytical skill.

You’ll acquire a sound knowledge of how to analyse and interpret interaction via English within and across cultures, developing professional skills that are highly relevant to the job market, with the additional benefit of having an option to learn a foreign language. We place emphasis on analysing both spoken and written forms of English language, using different methods of analysis and employing a range of theories of language usage.

Your studies are led by experts who are renowned nationally and internationally for their excellence in teaching and research. In the recent Research Assessment Exercise, 20% of our overall submission was said to be 'world leading' and 53% to be internationally excellent'. (Research Excellence Framework 2014).

We have a vibrant research community of both national and international students. We regularly host conferences which reflect the research interests of our academic staff, and research seminars by our own students, staff and visiting guest speakers.
