Course Summary

This course takes an innovative, modern approach to literature, focusing on drama, prose, fiction and poetry from the 17th century to the present – balancing the traditional with the modern. Pair these two subjects and you can examine how individuals, groups and nations interact within the context of history, ideology and socio-economic indicators. This knowledge will inform your exploration of the ways writers have helped to reflect and shape the world around them.

The exact composition of your study time and assessments for the course will vary according to your option choices and style of learning. Studying a combined honours degree gives you the opportunity to improve your employability by developing skills and knowledge in two subjects. The course will help you to develop a number of transferable skills well-suited to a broad range of graduate employment, including roles in the media, journalism, law, management, teaching, central and local government, political parties and public and social services.
