The Newman English degree is the ideal degree for you if you want to combine the study of English Language and Literature. A stylistics approach to English Language is carefully selected to complement the English Literature modules where the close reading of texts and critical appreciation are the focus of study. Literature modules range from the study of Shakespeare through to contemporary writers. The links between literature and film are explored in some modules and employability is built into the programme through links with partners such as Writing West Midlands and The Wordsworth Trust. Students also have the opportunity to study abroad. Assessment is largely through coursework and takes a variety of forms, including presentations, data analysis, essays and presentations. There are some timed activities and short exams. Coursework assignments allow you to focus on areas that are of particular interest to you. Students from the English course enjoy a wide range of successful careers. Our emphasis on employability comes not just from the work placements but also from our innovative approach to teaching with an emphasis on preparing you for the work place. Students progress to careers in teaching, publishing, library and archive services, marketing, journalism, and the professions such as law, health and human resources management.
