Portsmouth is the perfect place to study literature and history. Charles Dickens was born here, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle called these streets home, and Rudyard Kipling’s work was inspired by his early years here. Plus, it’s a city that’s played a major role in British and world history – you’ll find influences of the past throughout, from Portsea Castle to the Historic Dockyard.
On this BA (Hons) English Literature with History degree, you’ll examine literature from classics to the contemporary, and discover how history has shaped – and been shaped – by written works. You’ll become an expert in reading, analysing and discussing literature, and explore British and global history.
You’ll emerge with a skill set that’s sought after for careers in the arts, publishing, media and as a historian. The critical thinking, reading and analytical abilities you’ll develop will also set you up for postgraduate study or roles in areas like teaching and politics.
A degree in English literature is a great foundation for a career in the arts. Graduate employers also value the sophisticated analytical and presentational skills you’ll develop on this course.
After the course, you could work in areas such as:
arts and media
the heritage sector
