About English Language at Sheffield Hallam University

This course covers * the formal description of the English language * the history, development and varieties of the English language * methods for analysing language and discourse * theories of language and applications of language study We encourage you to apply if you want to understand more about * the nature of the English language, its syntax, semantics and sound system * how spoken and written discourses are organised * how we use language to communicate and interact * how language varies according to context * how we connect language to identity In your first year you study different approaches to language and communication, which allow you to describe language at all levels. You also consider * language in its social and historical contexts * language from various theoretical perspectives * the effect of choices in language use. In years two and three you study language and discourse analysis. You also choose from options that build on the knowledge gained in the first year. These options fall broadly in the areas of * critical discourse analysis * sociolinguistics * literary linguistics * psycholinguistics * pragmatics * interdisciplinary language study. You develop independent study skills through project work and a research-based dissertation. You base these on a language topic of your choice, which may relate to your future career plans.
