University of Sheffield
English Language and Linguistics
You'll study the sociocultural, historical and structural complexities of the English language with the option to study other modern languages as well. There are four flexible pathways available within the course, and you can follow one exclusively or combine different areas of study. **Literary Linguistics Pathway** This pathway examines a range of approaches to literary linguistic study including cognitive poetics, corpus stylistics and narratology. **Social and Historical Approaches Pathway** This pathway investigates complex real-world language problems in different social and historical contexts. **Structural and Theoretical Linguistics Pathway** This pathway explores the foundational mental structures and processes underlying language. **Modern Languages Pathway (co-run with the School of Languages and Cultures)** This pathway offers students the opportunity to study similar aspects of Slavic, Germanic and/or Romance languages. As your understanding of theory develops, you'll learn how to analyse language and how to carry out research projects. If you choose a work placement, you might also develop skills in marketing, archiving, teaching or publishing. Please see our University website for the most up-to-date course information.
