Course summary

If you have a love of both literature and history, this course is for you. There are enormous benefits to studying the two disciplines in tandem.You will use poems, novels and other works of literature to interpret and understand past societies and cultures, and, at the same time, you’ll bring textual analysis to historical sources. You’ll be asking questions about how the two disciplines differ, but also how the methods and approaches of the historian and literature specialist overlap. By the end of the course you will have developed both the rigorous research skills of the historian and the advanced communication skills of the literature student.The distinctiveness of the course lies in its combination of academic rigour with a concern for employability and developing ‘citizen scholars’. As part of this, we offer options to broaden your experience and cultural sensitivity by studying abroad for a semester in your second year.
