Course summary

**Course Overview**- Explore the relationship between English Language and Literature on this Foundation Entry programme, where you’ll analyse a wide range of different texts – from classic works of literature to popular media.- Foundation Entry degree courses are ideal if you’ve got the ability to study for a degree, but don’t have the necessary formal qualifications to directly join an honours programme. It’s a great stepping stone to a full degree.- You can tailor this course to your interests – our modules include semantics and pragmatics, gender and language, Shakespeare, the fairy tale, and the short story.- This programme is suitable if you’re aiming to teach English at secondary level, where it’s increasingly important that you demonstrate knowledge of both language and literature. The incorporation of ‘both sides’ of English develops skills which are relevant to a number of different careers.**Why study with us**- English Language is ranked 1st in the UK for Assessment and Feedback - National Student Survey (NSS) 2020.- Gain work experience later in the course through optional modules in volunteering, leadership and mentoring accredited by the Institute of Leadership and Management (ILM).- You’ll have the opportunity to publish your work in our Journal of Undergraduate research, Diffusion.**Further Information**Some of the highlights of this programme include:- A creative mix of tradition and innovation in topic and delivery.- Modules in popular culture and contemporary literature as well as studies in classical literature.- The study of traditional literature from the sixteenth century to the contemporary era, including William Shakespeare and Charles Dickens, as well as ‘new’ fictions, for example, in American literature and culture, gothic fictions, film adaptation and children’s literature.- A chance to gain valuable work experience relating to your studies - for example our work-related live project which could include planning for a conference, literature festival, reading project, setting up an exhibition and much more through the ELSIE Project.- Support from the University’s Worldwise Learning Centre, where you can access the latest language learning and digital technologies, including Rosetta Stone.- Learning with research-active tutors, who are specialists in their fields. You’ll get the opportunity to work with them as well as writing an article for Diffusion, a journal published by the University featuring supervised undergraduate research.- Field trips to museums, archival resources, readings and theatres, such as the Royal Shakespeare Company in Stratford to view a play; and Dove Cottage and other literary sites in the Lake District.- An opportunity to meet writers and literary critics.
