Course summary

**Aston University is The Guardian's 'University of the Year' 2020.****Course outline**As a student on the BSc (Hons) English Literature and Sociology course, you'll study literature, culture and history and explore the style choices of films, digital fiction, Instapoetry and Twitterfiction, alongside more traditional modes of text. We will equip you to critically engage with a variety of texts across both literary genres and periods, and you’ll be able to develop your skills as a writer through our Creative Writing module.On the sociology strand of the course, you’ll gain an in-depth understanding of social processes, organisational dynamics and inter-group relationships. We explore the social constraints we encounter in our everyday lives and how they are reinforced by class, race, religion and gender. To understand how these issues perpetuate existing inequalities and unequal life chances, we analyse how politics is intertwined with the profit-making aims pursued by big corporations and how their combined interests dominate our social imaginations. When learning about contemporary topics such as inequality, racism, health, migration, sexuality, identity, education, the media, crime and climate change, you will be taught by experts in these fields.our own life.**Key benefits**- As part of your degree you’ll undertake a professional placement year, gaining valuable practical experience that employers demand.- English at Aston scored 92 per cent for overall student satisfaction (National Student Survey, 2020).- Employed Aston sociology graduates earn £4,000 (23 per cent) more than the UK average, one year after graduation (Longitudinal Education Outcomes, 2020).- English at Aston was ranked 1st in the UK for ‘student to staff ratio’ (Guardian, 2020).
