Overview

The study of history and English language literary cultures (including theatre, film and creative writing) as part of a dual degree provides you with a complementary set of skills to comprehend and elucidate the literary qualities of historical texts (ambiguity, style, figurative language) and the historical context of literary texts. They are mutually supportive subjects, providing distinct but corresponding methodologies for a deep understanding and rigorous analysis of the processes of historical change, and the cultures that reflect, and encourage, that change.

Each department has research strengths from the Early Modern period through to the present day, including knowledge of American history and culture.

Career opportunities

Teaching is a popular option for those who want to make direct use of their subject knowledge. Others apply the transferable skills they have acquired in many different sectors.
