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 and English Literature and Music.English Literature and Music offers you the opportunity to pursue two complementary subjects in one degree. Students will develop skills in each discipline, learning to evaluate the ways that literary texts are produced, explore the creation of music and its performance and study the cultural impact of both. In English Literature you will explore the significance of texts within their originating cultures, 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 even film, from the medieval period to the present day. You will have the opportunity, if you wish, to develop your skills as a creative writer, and you can take modules in Film Studies.The Music strand of your degree will investigate music in a wide range of contexts. As well as focussing on the creation and performance of music, you’ll examine its meaning and uses in a diversity of styles, periods and traditions, through topics including history, aesthetics, music and narrative, and music’s social impact. You can also take a work placement module studying music in the community. Music at Keele is a hub of world-class musicologists, composers and performers, and the musical life on campus is rich and varied.An English Literature and Music degree will enable you to develop a wide range of skills that can be used in many different careers. Some careers may require further study or training, but you might work as a teacher, journalist, editor, librarian, advertising copywriter, or arts administrator. You could work in orchestras, bands, a recording company, publishing, game design, film, radio and television. Our graduates also go into careers in marketing, research, broadcasting, and publishing. Many of our graduates choose to pursue further academic study. If you are thinking of travelling the world after graduation, Keele’s Language Centreoffers a variety of language courses.
