What you'll learn on the course
Writers are the product of their times, so history and English is a perfect combination. You’ll explore great writers and works, from the middle ages to the near-present time, while studying the politics, cultural influences and societies of the corresponding periods.
The two subjects are fascinating in their own right, but studying them together is excellent training for analysing and expressing complex ideas generally. In other words, you’ll be developing abilities that will be useful in a vast range of careers and which employers especially value.
During the first year, you’ll develop an overview of the subject areas including Introduction to English Literature and Western Civilisation. You’ll then progress to more specialised study during Year 2, on modules such Shakespeare and his Contemporaries and History Today - before specialising further in Year 3, when you’ll study an English, history or combined subject in-depth for your dissertation.
Study skills classes and tutorials will help you meet the academic challenges of the course and you’ll learn through a combination of lectures, seminars and group work.
By the time you graduate you’ll be a confident presenter and debater, who can get to grips with complex arguments and ideas, challenge ‘accepted’ thinking and present well-supported arguments and opinions of your own.
You’ll also have a detailed grasp of two exciting subjects and will be well-equipped for postgraduate study or research, as well as the careers market.
