Overview

Studying the literature and language of English in combination allows you to explore the ways in which the English language has shaped and been shaped by culture throughout our history and continues to do and be so in the present day.

You will gain an understanding of the multitude of ways in which society is formed, communicates and reflects itself, both in practical everyday situations and in its creative literary output.

This single honours programme gives you a thorough grounding in both disciplines and encourages you to explore the interconnections of the two, with one of the largest concentrations of language and literature specialists in the country. You will be inspired and supported in your studies by our internationally-renowned staff, specialising in areas from language use in new media to the cultural impact of Shakespeare. English Language and Literature at Birmingham is ranked in the Top 40 in the QS World University Rankings 2018, with English ranking in the Top 5 in the Guardian University Guide 2019.
