This is one of several subject combinations available in the BA (Honours) Language Studies. In your study of English, you’ll find out how the language works and how it varies depending on the context. You’ll also explore its history, its politics, and how it came to be such a hugely influential global language. Your German studies will cover a range of aspects relating to the language and its cultures around the world. On completion, you’ll be an independent and intercultural user of German, have a wide-ranging understanding of how the English language is used to influence, and persuade.
There are no formal qualifications required to study this degree. Computer and internet access required.
If you’re new to study or to the OU, we recommend that you start with a course at Level 1.
