Overview

Language and literature complement each other perfectly as areas of study. To investigate language is to explore the medium in which literature is written. To study literature is to develop a comprehension of cultural context that is invaluable in understanding language.

Our degree offers you the opportunity to choose from a diverse array of modules ranging from sociolinguistics to satire, from language change to the contemporary novel, and from Old English to film theory. In this way you can experience a rich curriculum and benefit from the insights that both subject areas can provide.

At the same time, all the compulsory modules on your course bring together ideas from the two sides of the degree – language and literature – to investigate the ways in which the two subjects are related. This means that, although the programme is broad, it is also fully integrated and students are able to see the connections between the different kinds of work they are doing from level one onwards.
