Language captures the very heart of human experience. We use it to make sense of the world, to record and remember significant events, to enact social transactions, to communicate our thoughts and feelings, and to teach others. Among the world’s many languages, English has become a particularly important one that is used daily in a multitude of situations, modalities, settings and for a variety of purposes across the globe.

In choosing “English Language & Linguistics” as your first major, you will embark on an exciting and rigorous programme of study that is designed to provide comprehensive intellectual preparation in the study of your major. Undergraduates who read “English Language & Linguistics” will acquire the skills to understand and analyse language as a formal system, as a cognitive faculty, as well as an important tool in how people organize themselves socially. With a firm grasp of relevant theories, you will be equipped to articulate, represent, and apply this analytic understanding in ways that are appropriate for the different professional contexts you will encounter after graduation.
