We bring together a wide range of modules in literature and language, to provide you with a stimulating programme in which you can direct the emphasis towards language, or literature (including options in Creative Writing), or achieve a balance of both. The programme is aimed at students who are receptive to ideas and eager to explore them at university level with tutors who are open, friendly and available to help. The History programme is designed to give you a broad overview of historical development and change over time, as well as the opportunity to study particular periods and historical themes in more detail. It is also designed to enable you to develop the analytical and communication skills which are vital for gaining rewarding graduate-level employment. It can be taken either as a Single or Joint Honours subject. You can follow a general programme of modules or follow concentrations in Early Modern History, Modern History, Cultural History or non-European History.
