Course summary


This programme enables you to develop analytical skills by exploring a diverse range of texts, including novels, poems, plays, films, images and graphic novels. You will look at how meaning is created through language and form and at relationships between texts and contemporary cultural issues.

All of City College Norwich’s Degree programmes are validated by the UEA, meaning that the quality of the awards you get is assured by a world-renowned Higher Education organisation.

Teaching is usually over three terms of ten weeks, each with a weekly attendance of two days a week. You will normally study two modules, worth 20 credits, each term (plus a dissertation worth 40 credits in the third year). Teaching will involve lectures, guest speakers, small group sessions or seminars, tutorials, workshops, theatre and cinema and field trips. The list below indicates the modules that make up the programme.

Learning Outcomes

The programme seeks to ensure that on graduation you should be able to:

  • Work with confidence both independently and as a member of a group or team.
  • Demonstrate a capacity for systematic, conceptual and critical thinking.
  • Show flexible and creative approaches to problem solving.
  • Communicate clearly and appropriately, demonstrating a sense of audience.
  • Manage information effectively in a range of media.
  • Act in an ethical manner demonstrating political, social and cultural awareness.
  • Produce output that is literate, numerate and coherent.


All modules are assessed at the end of the module and some modules have additional mid module assignments. We use various assessment methods, including examinations, essays, in class assessments, presentations, creative writing exercises and portfolios, dissertations and projects.


Students have moved on to PGCE or other Teacher Training courses. Others have gone on complete Masters degrees and Doctorates.
