English Language at Atiba University has a distinctive character. As well as providing you with a rigorous grounding in the analysis of the English language, this course will train you to analyse the multimodal forms of communication that predominate in contemporary media.
You will learn such essential linguistic tools as phonetics, grammar and discourse analysis from those who are proficient in those fields. Language analysis, though, is just the starting point.
What makes Atiba special is our focus on the intersection of language with culture, society, politics and mind. While arming you with technical skills of analysis, we then expect you to grapple with exciting theories that will enable you to take into account the multifarious aspects of the context of language use and interpret the communication in a complex and meaningful way.
