Language shapes our world. It influences our perception of reality, brings our thoughts to life, and enables us to form relationships and forge communities. Richly textured and infinitely diverse, we work with language every day to communicate with those around us, from the formality of the boardroom to the clarity of the classroom.
At Worcester, you will have the opportunity to explore the power that language has to influence how people view their world, from community formation to personal identity, and business relations.
English Language is a joint honours course. You can study it with a range of other courses including English Literature, to make a complete English Studies course, or perhaps something like Creative Writing or Journalism.
