What our students say...

Sharing Passion for English Language and Literature in a Global Context

Students on the programme will study both English literature and linguistics. This programme encourages students to apply linguistic concepts to their own experiences with language, which will further enhance and strengthen their ability to analyze and interpret all forms of communication. By approaching language from both a literary and linguistic perspective, students will increase their capacity to think logically, critically, and creatively.
