    BA English Language and Politics


    This area offers 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 also able to select modules inlinguistics and literature as part of the range of options
    The Politics curriculum includes political theory, political analysis, comparative and historical analysis plus appropriate research methods and methodologies. Introductory modules examine contemporary problems, concepts, issues and approaches to the study of politics. Second year modules extend and deepen this initial analysis with the study of British politics, political philosophy, and research methods and methodology. The final year modules build on the foundations of earlier modules and provide an opportunity for in-depth, specialised study of practical real-world politics, contemporary political theory and student-driven independent research. A range of special option modules allow students the opportunity to specialise in areas that suit their interests such as political institutions, European politics, security studies, 'third world' politics and diplomacy.
