Course Summary

The University of Buckingham is:o Home of the 2-year degree – less cost and more focuso Top for Teaching Quality (The Times and Sunday Times Good University Guide)o Joint 4th in England for Student Satisfaction (National Student Survey)o Small group teaching focused – student:staff ratio of 11:1 o Flexible – start your course in September or JanuaryFor at least a hundred years, the discoveries and hypotheses of psychologists have been enriching the study of English literature, either as a way of understanding the mind of the artist, or of the characters they create. Studying psychology at Buckingham with English literature as your minor subject, gives you the chance to ‘apply’ the insights which the scientific study of individual and group psychology provides to a range of powerful and enigmatic works of literature, from the plays of Shakespeare, through the Gothic and Romantic projections of the late 18th-century, to the short stories and novels of British and American women writers writing in a post-Freudian universe.Both subjects require the close analysis of texts (spoken, written, uttered) and the discipline of clear report and essay-writing. Their combination in this programme gives you the imaginative scope of an arts programme with the vocation and professionalism of a Bachelor of Science degree.
