Within the English, Linguistics and Cultural Studies Department we make the most of our central London location, organising regular public events with institutions such as Tate Britain and the National Portrait Gallery, and a programme of regular guest lectures by high'profile speakers. We have a 40'year tradition of linguistics teaching and research, based in the heart of a vibrant, multicultural capital city. Our student'centred approach is designed to foster confidence in language and communication, promote the ability to analyse and critically evaluate diverse information, and encourage an interdisciplinary approach to cross'cultural practices. Our lively research culture in English embraces a range of critical approaches and various periods, including medieval and early modern, 18th and 19th century, Gothic studies, modernism, contemporary writing, and critical and cultural theory. Employers value the strong communication abilities and analytic skills of linguistics graduates.
Depending on their particular combination or degree students study modules in 1 or both languages from 1 or more of the following strands: Language development (teaching of the 4 skills by native and non'native speakers), languages in action (focus on professional context and communication skills in and out of the target language and English) and area studies (cultural context).
