Overview

Studied as a joint honours degree, you will explore English Literature in some of the immensely varied contexts of its production, alongside the practical business of how to research and communicate what is happening in the world, now.

Journalism at Worcester will equip you to work in today’s multi-platform media environment and enable you to apply for both journalism and communications roles once you have graduated.

Career opportunities

The Journalism aspect of this course will provide you with practical skills to work as a journalist or researcher, or in related communications jobs such as those in public relations. You will be well placed to progress to postgraduate study in journalism or in a wide range of other areas. Students have found employment in the following areas: radio presenting, both local and national, media research, journalism, event organising, media planning, television, theatre, marketing, public relations, campaigns, teaching and further study.

Many English Literature graduates will take a fourth year postgraduate Certificate in Education before entering the teaching profession. Other students will take a certificate in TEFL and become teachers of English as a second language at home or abroad. Many students progress to careers requiring good communication skills such as Public Relations or develop research careers with media or publishing companies.

Throughout the English Literature aspect of the course, there is a focus on developing employability which includes attractive opportunities for work experience, a credited work project module, and a career and professional development module. Students are also strongly encouraged to take up the opportunity to study abroad for a semester.
