As a student of English Language and Literature, you will discover the complex and fascinating relationships between literature, politics and history and study language analysis and language use across different contexts. This three-year degree opens up a range of exciting career possibilities by helping you to develop transferable skills which employers want.
The course covers how we acquire language, how language works, how societies communicate and over a thousand years of literature, from Beowulf to the present day. You will have the chance to study national and global literature, Renaissance literature, Gothic and genre fiction, 19th century literature, modernity and contemporary fiction, gender and culture, creative and professional writing.
You will have the option of taking the internationally recognised Cambridge Certificate in English Language Teaching to Adults (CELTA) during your second year, further improving your student experience and career prospects.
