Combining English and History offers the chance to explore two stimulating and diverse subjects, which give fascinating insights into one another by allowing you to consider culture and society from different perspectives.
Within English you can study either Literature or Language, exploring literature from the medieval to the modern day, or investigating the linguistic, social and political issues surrounding language and its use. Both disciplines interrelate very well with your study of History, in which you will explore the societies and civilisations of the past and consider the ways in which they have shaped our world today.
At Birmingham you will benefit from internationally renowned research and teaching, as well as unparalleled resources including our Shakespeare Institute, cutting-edge technology for real language analysis and the University Special Collections – home to over 60,000 rare and early printed books and upwards of 2 million manuscript and archive items.
