General Course for English Language Majors

The General Course for English Language Majors (GC ELM) is a Languages, Literature and Linguistics track specially designed for English Language majors who are required to study abroad during their degree.

GC ELM students are fully integrated into the General Course, benefiting from the full range of academic support and social provision.

Students are hosted by the School’s Language Centre and, rather than selecting courses from across the School, all GC ELM students follow a tailored combination of courses ideal for English language majors.

Programme Details

The programme comprises of the four following courses:

LN370 Discourse and Communication
LN250 English Literature and Society
LN270 Society and Language
One course in French, German, Mandarin, Russian or Spanish

The Language Centre provides each GC ELM student with an academic mentor and organises a range of additional social and cultural activities, curated to complement the courses being studied. At the end of their time at the School, GC ELM students receive an additional certificate recording their completion of courses in languages, literature and linguistics.
