Overview

English language at Northumbria is a fascinating and adaptable subject that opens up a range of career choices.

You’ll study a range of core modules in the areas of English grammar, discourse analysis, language ; psychology of language, sociolinguistics, and history and varieties of English. There is also a wide selection of option modules so you can focus on the areas that interest you most.

One such area is the Teaching of English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL). Depending on the number of TESOL-related modules you take, it’s possible to graduate with the degree award of ‘BA English Language Studies with TESOL’, which will give you additional employability.

Career opportunities

With highly honed skills in communication and analysis, you will be ready to hit the ground running once you start a career. You can use your degree as a platform to launch a career in an area such as journalism, publishing, advertising, media, PR, cultural administration, finance, law, teaching and the civil service. You can also consider continuing your studies at postgraduate level. If you have chosen the TESOL route then you will be able to move into teaching English as a second or other language.

Whatever you decide to do, you will have strong employability as a result of having acquired the characteristics of a Northumbria graduate. These include critical reflection and self-learning, collaboration and curiosity, and the ability to apply your knowledge to solve problems in ways that are sustainable and ethical.
