    BA English Language and International Relations


    This area offers a detailed study of the history and development of the uses of the English Language. It is not intended as a course for students wishing to improve their spoken English, but for students whose first language is English or whose knowledge of the language is already good. There is an introductory module which studies aspects of English such as style and register, grammer and reading techniques and practices advanced study skills. More specialised modules include the history of English, the study of national, regional and multicultural varieties of English and creative writing. Students are aslo able to select modules inlinguistics and literature as part of the range of options.
    This course is designed around a number of core modules which provide core disciplinary knowledge, concepts and subject - specific intellectual skills. These modules progresively equip the student with the intellectual tools necessary for the study of International Relations. It presents a recent history of global politics and a framework for understanding the contemporary global system and the distribution of power throughout the global, national and regional levels of that system. In addition the set offers a range of specialist option modules that enable students to develop and explore in greater depth a range of topics, historical, thematic and contemporary, according to their interests.
