Course summary

Course Details

Put the text into context by combining a love of literature with a passion for the past. This is a degree for innovative thinkers who will thrive on the stimulating and thought-provoking combination of English literature and history. Closely linked by ideas, approaches and source materials, you will learn about the relationship between the two subjects by critically and creatively focusing on particular time periods or themes.

At each level, you will study modules from our English Literature and History degrees, as well as tailor-made modules revealing methods and ideas that span the breadth of both subjects.

Course Benefits

Most of our tutors are widely published and actively researching new topics, providing fresh course content that is constantly evolving. We regularly offer cultural studies seminars where visiting lecturers present and elaborate on their own literary or historical research.

You will also have the opportunity to take part in exchanges with universities in Spain, Hungary, France, Ireland or the Czech Republic. Our European partners are keen for Leeds Beckett students to study with them for a semester.

Job Prospects

You will be highly valued by employers because of your proven skills in written and oral communication, critical thought and analysis, research, problem solving and presentation. You could forge a rewarding career in print or broadcast journalism, in publishing, sales and marketing, teaching or arts administration. You could also continue your studies at postgraduate level.
