This exciting and varied Joint Honours degree allows you to explore a huge range of literature in English alongside British, European and world history. You’ll be at the heart of our large and diverse Schools of English and History, developing your research skills and expanding your knowledge through core modules. In English, you’ll explore poetry, prose and drama across different literary periods, while in History you’ll focus on research methods and historiography. And as both Schools offer a fantastic variety of optional modules, you’ll have the chance to follow your own interests across periods and cultures in both subjects. You could study anything from Old English and the Arthurian legends to crime fiction and post-Apartheid narratives, as well as the Anglo-Saxons, Caribbean slavery and the Cold War. Whatever it is you’re looking for, the chances are you can find it at Leeds – and you’ll also gain valuable skills that really appeal to employers.
