Course summary

This course is a popular joint honours combination which brings together two subjects with highly complementary approaches and interests.As well as offering a balanced combination of core and option units rooted in each of the two subjects, this course has been designed so that students' growing knowledge and skills in each subject will help them to develop a distinctive perspective and distinctive strengths in the other. During year one, for instance, students will study the history of Manchester as a radical city on the History side of their joint curriculum, and the various ways in which it has been represented on the English side. As they do so, they will be developing foundational skills in the study of each discipline.Students will have opportunities to study abroad and, if they wish, to take their third year as a placement – in Britain or abroad. In their final year, students will have a chance to spread their wings with a substantial piece of project work, presented in a thesis, building on the skills they’ve been developing over previous years. The English and History subject groups are staffed by internationally renowned writers and academics, and there’s a strong research culture, creating a learning environment that is both supportive and intellectually challenging. We pride ourselves on our excellent teaching and highly positive student feedback. And with our extensive cultural links both in Manchester and further afield, students are in the right place to begin building a network for their future.This course has a Foundation Year available.**Features and Benefits**- Allows you to combine the study of two subjects.- Workshops and readings by published writers including Professor Carol Ann Duffy DBE (Poet Laureate 2009-2019), who is a professor in poetry at our Manchester Writing School.- History examines a range of source material including oral testimonies, documents, manuscripts, cartoons and film.- You will have the opportunity to spend your third year on an industry placement.
