About English Language and Sociology at University of Sheffield

Studying English language and sociology together gives you a unique insight into how language has developed over time and its place in society. You'll learn how to apply analytical skills and concepts to the study of human language. You'll also examine issues such as discrimination, globalisation, religion and belief, feminism and modernity.

As a dual honours student, you'll divide your studies between the School of English and the Department of Sociological Studies. Choice and flexibility are at the heart of our teaching, which means you can pursue and develop your own interests. At every level, there is a wide variety of modules to choose from. You will be taught by world-leading experts from both departments.

You'll be required to take a minimum number of credits within both departments each year, but how you choose to divide your modules after this is up to you: split your modules evenly between English and sociology, or choose to weight your degree in favour of one subject or the other.

Your English language modules will develop the skills and knowledge you need to become a successful linguist. You'll study the fundamentals of linguistic theory - syntax, semantics, phonetics, phonology - and apply these to a huge array of real-life contexts, exploring the relationship between language and gender, discourse, history and place.

In your sociology modules, you'll explore concepts of community, identity and welfare, and study a range of topics such as crime and deviance, digital health, surveillance, race and racism, new genetics and masculinities.

Research is central to the student experience here in Sheffield. All our teaching is informed by the latest findings, and all our students have the opportunity to carry out their own research project as part of their degree. Outside of your degree, there are many opportunities to develop your interests, insights and critical faculties.
