Language is intrinsically linked with a country's literature, traditions and history.
If you want to explore the linguistic and literary heritage of the English language, understanding how it influences communication then these courses are for you. Your skills of self-expression and analysis will develop as you read widely and look at the genres of poetry, prose, drama and a range of non-literary texts.
If you want to progress a career outside of the UK then you can build on your interpretation and communication skills in a foreign language. Linguistic abilities are lifelong transferable skills that have important applications across the full spectrum of trade and industry. European living is opened up to you as your foreign language skills develop.
