    Course Summary

    Newcastle University’s English Language BA program combines study of the English language in particular, including its history, development and possible future, with linguistics more generally.

    This program offers vital placement opportunities in addition to taught classes. You’ll have access to an early work placement of 9-12 months in a professional or commercial context, as well as a later cultural industry placement which will be integrated into your third stage studies, one day per week for approximately 10 weeks.

    Finally, you will have the opportunity to study a single semester abroad with one of Newcastle’s partner universities. This will give you important cultural perspective for your linguistic studies in several EU and Canadian university settings.

    If you are changing direction after starting in another career area, you will possess valuable work experience and professional awareness. Many employers actively seek candidates with these benefits. Our network of contacts, a dedicated employability service and a reputation in the legal profession mean we also have an outstanding track-record of finding students legal employment.Many employers favour GDL students in an increasingly competitive legal job market. Through studying another degree subject, you will have gained many transferable skills. By taking the conversion route into law, you are showing motivation and determination by choosing law at a later stage than some others. This looks good to employers.

    Course Outline

    This degree program is typically delivered over the course of 3 years, in 3 distinct phases. Each phase consists of 120 credits of compulsory and elective modules.

    Stage 1:

    You’ll start with compulsory modules touching on the nature and structure of language generally, and the way languages change. You can also take electives dealing with particular languages besides English, such as French, German and Spanish.

    Stage 2:

    The second stage of the program sees you studying sociolinguistics, and the very early stages of the English language. You also have the option of taking many different electives, to begin building your specialty.

    Stage 3:

    The third stage is almost completely wide-open. You can select from a wide range of high level electives and truly determine your own educational journey to conform to your ultimate career or higher learning goals.
