English Language and Sociology BA(Hons)

Language is central to the creation and maintenance of society in terms of the interactions and communications through which beliefs, structures and patterns of behaviour are passed on. This course enables you to study both Sociology and English Language. It will enable you to investigate language using some of the techniques and frameworks of modern linguistics and help you to understand how English functions in so many diverse ways and in different contexts.

The course aims to equip you for the real world by educating you to understand, analyse and critique the communication going on around you and to understand how it contributes to society as a whole. In your second year, you’ll have the opportunity to take a placement for 5-weeks, as part of the ‘Language in the Workplace’ module or a year-long placement in Year 3. These skills are relevant to most modern careers, but can be closely linked to a wide range of careers in the public sector (e.g. local government), charity and campaigning organisations and a broad range of service industries. Our facilities are world-class and include a forensic linguistics laboratory, our research and resource centre and conference labs.

Linguistics and Criminology BA(Hons)

Language is central to the way all aspects of society are conducted, including crime and the criminal justice system. This course enables you to study both. It will enable you to investigate language using some of the techniques and frameworks of modern linguistics and help you to understand how English functions in so many diverse ways and in different contexts. You will also develop a thorough understanding of the major criminological concepts, theories and perspectives.

My student journey so far

Chloe Withers Criminology BSc(Hons) “When I was little, I wanted to be a police officer” says Chloe, from Hull. “We have a close family friend and his daughter was a police officer. I always looked up to her and I thought it was an important job to have. “I was always interested in crime, particularly serious crime. I’m fascinated with death row in America, and my interest in criminology stemmed from that” she explains. “I’m interested in why crime is committed, what the motivations are for it, what you can do to prevent it from happening and how to help victims.”

I’m interested in why crime is committed. Chloe’s interest in crime led her to studying Criminology at the University of Huddersfield, and the course has helped her to develop a different dream for her future career. “In our first year we did a module called ‘Human Rights in Contemporary Society’ and I loved it. I now want to study a Master’s degree in Human Rights Law. “Hopefully that will enable me to work for charities and organisations that protect vulnerable people, such as Amnesty International, Human Rights Watch and the United Nations. You hear a lot on the news about vulnerable people, such as refugees, and I’m interested in how I can help them.” To hear Chloe talk about her student journey visit hud.ac/profiles

Meet our staff

From stonemasonry to sociology

Chris Cameron Senior Lecturer, Behavioural Sciences Chris, from Barnsley, has followed an interesting journey into the world of academia. “I worked initially as a stonemason and later as a mining mechanic. I worked underground in mining until I was made redundant with the mine closure programme of the 1990s. “I became interested in sociology during my time in mining. As part of my apprenticeship I attended Barnsley College. Specifically, I became interested in sociology during my psychology A Level. My tutor also taught sociology and we talked about it in breaks and after classes. When I applied for university places I had decided I wanted to study both subjects.

It gives me great pleasure to see students’ happiness on graduation day. “I graduated three years later and by then I knew I wanted to teach and do research. One of my former lecturers remembered my ambitions and contacted me with an opportunity to do my PhD at Huddersfield. I began teaching whilst undertaking this, and on completion began working as a lecturer. “I enjoy teaching subjects that I have a strong personal and research interest in, challenging conventional thought and promoting critical thinking. It’s particularly pleasing to supervise students’ final year projects as this draws on all their learning and their progress can be clearly seen.”
