English Literature and History

You are excited when you open up a new book. Great works of literature inspire you. And you’re fascinated by the events and the people that have shaped today’s modern world. The chance to study English literature and history side by side gives you a unique and enriching view of both subjects as they can both inform and underpin each other. You are excited when you open up a new book. Great works of literature inspire you. And you’re fascinated by the events and the people that have shaped today’s modern world. The chance to study English literature and history side by side gives you a unique and enriching view of both subjects as they can both inform and underpin each other. Our English Literature course spans hundreds of years of inspiration, from the English Renaissance of the 16th century right up to the present day. So whether you love Jacobean drama or contemporary poetry, you’ll be able to indulge your tastes and hopefully gain some new ones too. Your choices on the History side of your degree are equally wide ranging. We’ll cover the cultural, societal, historical and political impact of events and eras that have had a huge impact on today’s civilisation. Along the way you’ll be able to study conflicts, empires, disasters and more, from the medieval period right through to contemporary society. The course is an equal mixture of both subjects. In your first year in History you’ll have the chance to learn more about early medieval Europe and 20th-century Britain. And in your Literature modules you’ll start looking at a wide range of literature, as well as literary criticism and theory. The topics we cover aren’t just exciting and rewarding to study, they could help you develop some transferable skills that employers are looking for too. You could go on to a career in fields such as teaching, librarianship, archives, the media, industry, the voluntary sector, PR, law and accountancy. In your second year, you’ll also have the opportunity to take a placement for five weeks. The ERASMUS+ exchange scheme also offers a short-term opportunity to study abroad at one of our partner universities.
