Overview

This course allows you to combine the study of literary texts with the study of history. It enables you to gain a command of the social and political circumstances in which the writing of literature has taken place, as well as of the texts themselves.

You will be able to develop your knowledge and understanding of the key periods, themes, styles and techniques in literary studies, and be able to use that learning in critical form. You will also develop a substantial body of knowledge and understanding of the modern history of London, Britain and the world.

The course will give you the skills and knowledge to enter careers with a significant element of research, such as in broadcasting, journalism, teaching or publishing. It will also equip you with the transferable and cognitive skills necessary for lifelong personal and professional development.

Depending on whether the course is taken as a joint Honours or a major/ minor combination, the balance of the two subject areas varies. In Year 3 you will complete the English Literature and History dissertation which allows you to refine and showcase, via a topic of your choosing, the skills developed over the course of your degree.
