The core modules you’ll follow in your second year include English Sounds and Structures; Understanding Media, and The Language of Advertising. 

Second and third year options include Discourse Analysis; Stylistics; Corporate Communication; Language in the Workplace, or Language and Identities, and you will complete an independent media-related Dissertation in your final year.
