Course summary

Do great works of literature inspire you? Are you fascinated by the events and the people that have shaped the modern world? The chance to study English Literature and history side by side gives you a unique and enriching view of both subjects as they can inform each other. Here are a few good reasons to choose this combined course at Huddersfield: * We offer a wide range of module options to choose from, diverse and unique forms of coursework assessment, and excellent employment prospects. * Our team of English academic staff are ranked in the top 5 in the UK for the quality of their research publications (REF 2014). * You learn applied skills as well as academic knowledge. * We get you out of the classroom on a range of exciting field trips. * Every year students also have the chance to get involved in events at the Huddersfield Literature Festival - https://www.huddlitfest.org.uk/ The English Literature element of the course spans hundreds of years of inspiration, from the English Renaissance of the 16th century right up to the present day. So whether you love Elizabethan drama or twenty-first-century poetry, the Victorian period or Modernist writing, you’ll be able to indulge your tastes and gain some new interests. Your choices on the History side of your degree are equally wide ranging. We’ll cover the cultural, social, historical and political dimensions of key events and eras that have had a huge impact on today’s civilisation. Along the way you’ll be able to study conflicts, empires, disasters and more, from the medieval period right through to contemporary society. Combining History and English Literature lets you have the best of both worlds. You’ll be able to study a range of historical periods and literary genres. Literary texts are often very revealing as historical sources and this degree will give you the chance to explore the connections between these two subjects. ~ Dr Sarah Bastow, Head of History.
