Course summary

If you love reading and interrogating literature, and are also interested in the historical context of its creation, BA English and History is a course that will help you combine these passions.**Why study BA English and History at Goldsmiths?**- You’ll look at how texts represented and defined the attitudes of their time, and how they challenged or shocked the readers of the past. You’ll learn to respect the power of the written word, and understand its potential for both positive and negative impacts.- The best way to understand any words on a page is to understand the culture and society in which they were written. By studying both the texts themselves, and the history behind them, you’ll go beyond the boundaries of the text; understanding what you read as part of a wider discourse. - You’ll be able to choose a range of modules from both English and History. In the final year, you’ll bring the two disciplines together with a dissertation that interrogates the literature we’ve studied and uses it to answer a historical question that has piqued your interest.- Our optional History at Work module gives you the chance to learn about working as a historian.- You’ll gain important skills including the ability to analyse and evaluate texts, spot biases, write summaries and draw evidence-based conclusions. The course is particularly useful for any career that involves analysing or processing large amounts of information.
