English and History (with Foundation Year) - University of the West of England

BA(Hons) English and History (with Foundation Year) gives you a deep understanding of the relationship between historical contexts and literature. Become an expert reader of primary texts and an excellent writer, able to respond clearly to a broad range of issues. Develop your independent thinking, communication and critical thinking abilities - valuable assets in the workplace. Advance your skills in traditional and multimedia research and graduate highly employable and ready for a rewarding career or further study. Get involved in Bristol's vibrant and diverse cultural scene. We have strong links with Bristol Museums, Galleries and Archives (BMGA), including M Shed, Watershed, the Arnos Vale Cemetery Trust and the National Trust. Embark on a placement with a local cultural organisation in your third year and gain valuable real world skills, experience and contacts. We are internationally recognised for conducting leading research and both English and History at UWE Bristol are consistently ranked highly for student satisfaction in the National Student Survey (NSS). You’ll graduate ready for a wide range of rewarding careers in publishing, teaching, advertising, marketing and communications, charity, the civil service, broadcasting, tourism and more. You could also go on to an MA in English or History - UWE Bristol currently offers a Master's in Research (MRes) with pathways for English and History.
