The extended degree programmes include a foundation year, which will provide you with a sound introduction to key elements needed for studying English Literature and Histroy at degree level. Our extended degree programme will provide you with a thorough and supportive academic preparation for study. The foundation year is carefully designed to build confidence in your abilities, develop essential academic and study skills, and provide you with the subject specific knowledge essential for success.

This degree has been designed with the two subjects in mind, creating an integrated and coherent programme that weaves the two areas of study together. You’ll expand your knowledge of both disciplines, and develop your understanding of the relationship between literature, politics, history and culture. You’ll take specialised modules, such as ‘Literature and History’ and ‘Writing the Nation’, focusing specifically on the important relationship between English Literature and History. You’ll also choose modules from across both subjects, allowing you to tailor your degree to your interests. You’ll learn about critical and theoretical approaches to texts and explore different genres and literary periods, as well as different types of history including social and economic, political, cultural, local, and women’s history. You will delve into specific periods of history, including the medieval and English Renaissance, the Enlightenment and Victorian periods, modern British and European history, and 20th century American history. You will study a range of topics, including constructions of gender and sexuality, the history of childhood and children’s literature, political tyranny and genocide, diaspora and multiculturalism. You’ll be taught by world-class researchers and writers, and be able to meet renowned authors at extra lectures and masterclasses, which have previously included our Chancellor, Dame Jacqueline Wilson, Kazuo Ishiguro, Anthony Horowitz and Emma Donoghue.
