This programme bridges the gap between what linguists know about the learnability of languages and what language teachers experience in daily life. ... [+]

One of the key competences of communication professionals these days is to understand and successfully employ the relation between media use and communication processes. Our programme will offer you insight into the factors that, in professional contexts, influence the interplay of media, communication processes and language in a globalized world. In our courses, you will study new phenomena in media use and international communication and develop a thorough theoretical understanding of communication. Old and new media in a globalized world

These days, social media are no longer only used for their original purpose, personal communication, but also employed by businesses for professional purposes. Organizations use Twitter for webcare, Skype or Facetime for meetings and Whatsapp for conversations. Facebook is also used for creating business communities. In the BA CIS specialisation Language and media you will learn how and why organizations apply new (and old) media in business-to-business and business-to-consumer interaction. You will also discover how applications of new media influence, shape or even define the content and linguistic or visual characteristics of the messages that are exchanged. Tweets, for instance, have a limit of 140 characters, which affects the language that is used. Likewise, a face-to-face conversation differs from a WhatsApp conversation, as a result of the medium used. But it also works the other way around: characteristics of texts , images or conversations may themselves also affect the choice for a particular medium. Our programme will provide you with the skills necessary to analyse various aspects of media design... [-]

Interaction between literature and society

The focus of our programme is on the interactions between literature and society, and literature and visual culture. You will read canonical British works, and also explore contemporary novels from different English-speaking countries. In our courses, you will analyze these texts from two cutting-edge perspectives: English literature in a changing world, and English literature in a visual culture.

How does literature react to major changes in society? Think of the attacks on the Twin Towers and the novel Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close. In our courses, you will discover how literature can also cause social change. A famous example is Uncle Tom’s Cabin, which played an important role in the abolition of slavery. Literature has the power to change readers’ ways of looking at the world. The novel 1984 raised concerns over government surveillance of its citizens. In other words, literature is not positioned at a remove from society, but at its very center. Studying English literature therefore also entails studying the major social developments in various English-speaking countries.... [-]

About

In the program in Linguistics at the Utrecht University, you will learn how language works, what processes take place in our brain when we talk and why languages change.

Linguistics is versatile: it connects experiments (psychology), logic (philosophy), computer models (artificial intelligence) and field work (anthropology) to understand the most important feature of humankind: language!

There are thousands of languages worldwide. We all speak and understand at least one of them, which we effortlessly learned as a child. Language comes so naturally that we hardly give it any thought, but linguistics studies this phenomenon in a scientific way: how we acquire it, how we use it, and how it develops through the centuries....
