This joint honours degree combines modules in Linguistics and Phonetics with modules run by English Language experts in the School of English. You will learn about the internal structure of contemporary English, including its phonetics, phonology, morphology, syntax, lexis and pragmatics. You will have the opportunity to apply concepts relating to the structure and history of English to the analysis of a variety of text types. You will engage with scholarship at the forefront of research into English and linguistics, and you will plan, carry out and write up an original research project under supervision by a member of staff in Linguistics and Phonetics or English.

Year Abroad or Year in Industry
When enrolled on the BA English Language and Linguistics, you will have the option to apply for a transfer to an International degree, with a year spent studying at one of a range of universities with which the University of Leeds has established links, or an Industrial degree, with a year's work placement organised through the University's Careers Centre. Both of these options convert your degree to a four-year course.
