Trosolwg y cwrs

Our English Language and Linguistics degree combines the systematic study of the human capacity for language in all its expressions across the world with an added focus on the English language.

You will learn about all aspects of human language and how linguistic knowledge is acquired, produced and understood in different contexts. . You will discover what all languages have in common, what distinguishes them and how they change over time. You will also come to appreciate varieties in language, including historical changes, accents, distinct social registers as well as differences between spoken and written language.

Acquiring career-enhancing skills, you will become adept in producing multimodal texts (think websites, blogs and magazine covers) using specific software packages. You will gain skills from analysing numerical data or speech in phonetics to deciphering patterns in large collections of written and/or spoken language known as corpora.

We have specialist modules with careers in education, the media, health, and the legal process in mind.  Our community is welcoming, international in outlook and home to the globally respected Centre for Language and Communication Research. We pride ourselves on nurturing a friendly, personalised and supportive environment, with regular one-to-one meetings.

Studying for a degree in English Language and Linguistics develops abilities to analyse and critique the language that surrounds us but also helps develop a strong skillset. Our graduates are known for their ability to combine the best of humanities (like communicating effectively) with the best of social science skills (technical analysis through systematic and critical handling of data for instance).

Strwythur y cwrs

In each year of the Programme, you will take Modules to the value of 120 credits, totalling 360 credits for the three years of your degree.

You must pass each academic year before being allowed to proceed. The classification of your degree is based on the grades you achieve in years two and three.

Mae'r modiwlau a ddangosir yn esiampl o'r cwricwlwm arferol. Byddant yn cael eu hadolygu cyn blwyddyn academaidd 2020/21. Bydd y modiwlau terfynol yn cael eu cyhoeddi erbyn mis Medi 2020

Blwyddyn un

The first year consists of 120 credits, which must include 40 credits in the two linked core modules. These modules cover all the essential tools of linguistic analysis and introduce you to the basic skills needed for the next two years of your degree Programme. 

The remaining 80 credits are chosen from a list of optional modules. You may include up to 40 credits in English Literature and/or Philosophy in addition to your English Language choices.

Blwyddyn tri

In year three you will again study 120 credits.

Your final year will allow you a lot of freedom to tailor your degree to suit your chosen career path and to choose the modules you are most interested in.

You will take at least 20 credits from a choice of three or more options that are particularly relevant to the study of linguistics plus 100 credits from the range of English language and linguistics modules available.

You may also have the option to study a Dissertation (20 credits, 1 semester) or Extended Dissertation (40 credits, 2 semesters) on a topic of particular interest to you. This will depend on you meeting certain grade requirements.

Mae'r Brifysgol wedi ymrwymo i ddarparu amrywiaeth eang o opsiynau modiwl lle’n bosibl. Ond byddwch yn ymwybodol er y byddwn yn gwneud pob ymdrech i gynnig dewis, gall hyn gael ei gyfyngu mewn rhai amgylchiadau. Y rheswm am hyn yw'r ffaith mai dim ond nifer cyfyngedig o leoedd sydd ar gael ar rai modiwlau, a gaiff eu dyrannu ar sail y cyntaf i'r felin. Mae'n ofynnol i fodiwlau eraill sicrhau isafswm nifer o fyfyrwyr cyn gallu eu cynnal, er mwyn gwneud yn siŵr y gellir cyflwyno addysg o ansawdd priodol. Gall modiwlau gael eu cyfyngu oherwydd gwrthdaro yn yr amserlen hefyd, ac er bod y Brifysgol yn ymdrechu i amharu cyn lleied â phosibl ar eich dewis, byddai'n syniad da i chi ofyn am gyngor gan yr Ysgol berthnasol am y dewisiadau modiwl sydd ar gael.

Dysgu ac asesu

Sut caf fy addysgu?

A diverse range of teaching and learning styles is used throughout the programme. You will attend lectures, participate in seminars and carry out independent research in preparation for each session. Modules usually last one semester and mostly consist of two lectures and one seminar per week, as well as independent study.

The learning activities will vary from module to module as appropriate, but may include such activities as: interactive lectures, seminar discussions of prepared texts/topics, student presentations or  group presentations and small-group work within seminars. You are expected to do the reading and other relevant preparation to enable you to take a full part in these activities and are encouraged to explore the resources of the library as appropriate.
If you choose to take a Dissertation or Extended dissertation in Year three you will do independent research on a topic of interest to you, with regular help and supervision from a lecturer with expertise in that topic area. 

Sut y caf fy nghefnogi?

You will be allocated a personal tutor who will help you reflect on your performance on the course and advise you on study techniques, module selection and career planning (in conjunction with the University’s Career Service). They will also provide a first point of contact if you experience any difficulties.  Each semester, you will have a scheduled “Academic Progress and Personal Development Meeting” with your personal tutor.

We have a designated Employability, Internships and Placements Officer, who ensures that any work experience and placement opportunities are advertised to all students. Another member of academic staff acts as Disability and Diversity Officer and ensures that reasonable adjustments are made for students with disabilities. There is also a Study Abroad Coordinator who facilitates the option of spending part of your study at an institution abroad.

All modules make extensive use of the University’s Virtual Learning Environment, Learning Central, where you can access discussion forums and find course materials including, for example, links to core readings and other relevant materials, online tests, past exam papers and examples of student work from previous years.

The University offers a range of services including the Careers Service, the Counselling Service, the Disability and Dyslexia Service, the Student Support Service, and excellent libraries and resource centres.  

Feedback

We’ll provide you with frequent feedback on your work. This comes in a variety of formats including oral feedback during tutorials, personalised feedback on written work, feedback lectures, generic written feedback and feedback on tutorial performance

Coursework will be marked by your module tutor and your tutor will give you written feedback on your work. You will also have a feedback class after each assessment.

You will be given general feedback in relation to examinations following the May/June examination period and you will be able to discuss your overall performance with your personal tutor as part of the monitored student self-assessment scheme.

Sut caf fy asesu?

A range of formative and summative assessment methods are used, including essays, examinations, presentations, portfolios and creative assignments.

Essays and examinations are used not only for assessment purposes but also as a means of developing your capacities to gather, organise, evaluate and deploy relevant information and ideas from a variety of sources in reasoned arguments. Dedicated essay workshops and individual advice enable you to produce your best work, while written feedback on essays feeds forward into future work, enabling you to develop your strengths and address any weaker areas.

The optional final-year dissertation provides you with the opportunity to investigate a specific topic of interest to you in depth and to acquire detailed knowledge about a particular field of study, to use your initiative in the collection and presentation of material and present a clear, cogent argument and draw appropriate conclusions.
