About English Language and Linguistics, BA - at University of Sheffield

Change how you see the world through the study of language and linguistics - applying your knowledge of how languages work, how they are stored in speakers' minds, and how we make use of them.

From a foundation of linguistic concepts - speech sounds, grammatical structures, variation and history - you can take this degree wherever your interest flows.

Choosing from topics such as first and second language acquisition, theoretical linguistics, language and gender, accents and dialects, the history of English, and language and literature, you'll have the opportunity to specialise and either pursue a one-term research project or year-long dissertation.

You will acquire digital skills that help to analyse language and linguistic data, with opportunities to use specialist software to analyse speech, map regional language variation, and work with numerical data. Because language is used in every facet of human life, English Language and Linguistics can contribute to every other field of study, and leads to many career options.
