Studied as a joint honours degree, these subject areas provide you with exciting opportunities to combine very different types of learning. In tandem with academic study and writing, you will be exploring the practical business of how to research and communicate what’s happening in the world, now. Both of these subject areas enable you to benefit from your lecturers’ cutting edge research - from investigating the political purposes of Hamlet in translation, to exploration of Buddhist American poetry, from perceptions of women newsreaders to the workings and impact of online citizen journalism. If your interest in English literature as part of our human culture of communication past and present is matched by a desire to get involved in the business of communicating today, it’s worth considering this programme. With their mix of practical, hands-on learning and academic study, English Literary Studies and Journalism may be well be an ideal choice for you.
