English II

30 Credits

Starts week 35, 2021

The aim of this course is for students to develop a basic understanding of some of the core areas of English literature and English linguistics. Students will develop their ability to critically reflect on, analyse and interpret texts, both from literary and linguistic perspectives. In the literary part of the course, students will develop their ability to communicate and argue for their own interpretation of literary texts in light of various social and cultural contexts. More specifically, student work will be focused on the development of British and American literature in relation to the history of ideas. In the linguistic part of the course, students will develop their knowledge of theories and methods used in a selection of areas of English linguistics, including morphology, syntax, semantics, pragmatics and sociolinguistics. A range of authentic data will be analysed to promote a deeper understanding of theory and method, and to provide opportunities to practice applying linguistic terminology. Students will develop their academic proficiency in both spoken and written English. The course involves writing practice in the form of final essays in both literature and linguistics
