In combination, these subject areas enable you to explore English literature in some of the immensely varied contexts of its production alongside investigating different types of history across a very broad range of periods. As you progress, you may choose to select modules that maintain a deliberately wide-ranging approach. Alternatively however, you can hone and focus in on particular topics, creating opportunities to develop extended projects that bring your own interests in both subjects closer together. Both also aim to support your understanding of the range of opportunities that could be available to you on graduation. To this end, you can undertake work placements, explore opportunities for postgraduate study and investigate, with those who are already working in them, career paths in teaching, the creative and cultural industries and other sectors in which English literature and History graduates find work.
