Overview

This course invites students to study some of the best texts ever written in the English language, from medieval through to contemporary, and to consider not just their authors and the social and cultural contexts of their work, but also the language they are made of. History is written by the victors – and, as part of one of our most popular degrees, we will fuel your passion for history as we explore diverse aspects of past cultures and gain a rich perspective on major current issues.

Programme structure

You will study a dynamic and challenging subject, explore diverse aspects of past cultures and gain a rich perspective on current issues. Over the course of your degree, you will develop your knowledge of British, European and international history.

In addition, students study non-literary texts and learn how language is used in social, political and institutional contexts in order to shape knowledge, control public opinion, build community or distribute power.

Another component of this course concentrates on the history of English, where students learn how the language has evolved from its Anglo-Saxon origins to the present.

Career opportunities

We want you to become an independent, self-motivated writer, critic and thinker. We will help you to understand the relationship between literature and the period in which it is written, to examine the form and style of literary works, to interrogate how language is used in politics, the media and the internet, and to engage with literary theorists who have opened up important philosophical and political questions. We’ll teach you how to get to grips with complex volumes of information in short timeframes – in the process you will definitely improve your IT and word processing skills as well!
