Course Summary

At Keele University, we’re different. Nestled in 600 acres of countryside in the heart of the UK, we have a big campus but a small and cosmopolitan community. We’re proud to be ‘University of the Year for Student Experience’ in The Times and The Sunday Times Good University Guide 2017, in addition to having been ranked No.1 in the National Student Survey 2014-2016. This is because it’s more than green and lovely, it’s a place of research and academic excellence too.At Keele, studying a combined honours degree will include some modules from both of the single honours degrees. In this case, your programme will be made up of a combination of modules from both English Literature and Psychology.A combined degree in English Literature and Psychology offers the opportunity to develop skills in both disciplines. In English Literature, you’ll explore the aesthetic expression of different forms of thought, while in Psychology you’ll learn about and research why humans feel, think and act in the ways that they do.Literature is an aesthetic expression of personal and social values. In English Literature you will discover ways in which knowledge of the paradigms and methodologies of psychoanalysis can illuminate our reading of literary texts from the medieval period to the present day. Texts are analysed with respect to their originating culture, periods and genres as well as their continuing influence. You might consider the historical, socio-political, economic, gender and geographical contexts of fiction, poetry, drama and film. In Psychology, you’ll learn about what the latest psychology research, including studies published by our own friendly staff, tells us about human behaviour from social, developmental, biological and cognitive perspectives. We will show you how to design and conduct your own psychological studies in our well-equipped labs using a range of techniques including interviews, surveys and experiments.You’ll graduate with a wide range of skills including oral and written communication, presentation, and skills specific to critical inquiry. You will be able to communicate complex ideas effectively to different kinds of audience, producing persuasive arguments informed by careful research. Some careers may require further study or training, but you might work as a teacher, journalist, editor, librarian, advertising copywriter, or arts administrator. Many of our graduates choose to pursue further academic study. The course is accredited by the British Psychological Society, enabling you to access training and careersin professional psychology, such as clinical psychology, forensic psychology, and educational psychology (subject to meeting the BPS criteria).
