This degree closely follows the BA English Language and Applied Linguistics in its Preliminary and Qualifying Year: it provides a thorough programme of study to the highest standards of English communicational and critical skills, with a particular emphasis on literature in the English language, and the cultural patterns associated with these texts. The programme is based on the successful degree course which has been established in Nottingham for 125 years.

In addition to standard theories of language, this degree provides students with a sophisticated understanding of how language is used in context and influenced by purpose, setting and audience. It focuses especially on an understanding of written culture through literature produced in English. It provides a thorough understanding of the nature and uses of English in context, and aims to equip students with communicative and critical skills.
