English Literature and English Language (with a Year Abroad)

If you are interested in analyse a range of literary texts from various contexts and historical periods, alongside exploring the complex relationships between literature, politics and history whilst considering how words combine to inspire us and move us, to persuade, encourage and amuse us – or even how we acquire language in the first place and you would like to spend a year abroad then this is the degree for you. Our English Language and English Literature degree programme offers you the opportunity to: • Develop a command of the basic methods, principles and vocabulary for describing, analysing and interpreting language and language use during Level One study. • Develop your knowledge and understanding of language use during Level Two study. • Undertake more independent and specialised work during your final year allowing you to explore the area of applied language studies which is of most interest to you. • Study optional modules in Take Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL) or Creative Writing. • Study optional modules in Gender and Culture with specialist researchers and lecturers. • Spend your third year abroad more information needed. Swansea is the birthplace of Dylan Thomas, widely regarded by many literary scholars as one of the Twentieth Century's most influential lyrical poets, and amongst the finest as such of all time. 97% of our graduates are employed within six months of graduating according to the latest DLHE 2015 figures. Our Employability Officer supports our students with information and advice which is backed up by the University’s Careers Service and Work Placement Team. All students have access to events, workshops and employer talks, including an annual conference for students in June to support final year students with the transition into the world of work. Set in parkland overlooking Swansea Bay on the edge of the breathtaking Gower Peninsula, the University's location is captivating. With 15,921 students and 2,510 staff, Swansea's multicultural campus community provides a global perspective and opportunities to gain skills that last a lifetime.
