Overview

On this course you will study fantastically stimulating and distinctive modules that range from Shakespeare to contemporary fiction, and from the fundamentals of grammar and syntax to the redefinition of what the ‘English’ language is.

We aspire to help you as you help yourself in becoming a ‘citizen scholar’ who is able to think independently and make your own contribution to the world. As part of this, we ensure that you engage with advanced linguistic concepts and literature from around the world. We also offer options to broaden your experience and cultural sensitivity by studying abroad for a semester in your second year, usually in North America or mainland Europe.

All students on the course said that it had helped them to present themselves with confidence, according to the National Student Survey 2015, and they were equally unanimous that staff are good at explaining things and easy to contact. In the last four years there has been a 100% pass rate with the majority of students achieving a 2:1 degree classification or higher.

Career opportunities

With highly honed skills in communication and analysis, you will be ready to hit the ground running once you start a career. In recent years, many of our graduates have developed successful careers in marketing, PR, media, journalism, communications, publishing, advertising, education (at various levels), local government, and in both public and private sectors. Others have gone on to postgraduate study.

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.
