Course summary

Our BA (Hons) English Literature and Sociology with Foundation Entry degree course is designed for students who want to study English Literature and Politics, but don’t have the necessary formal qualifications to start the Honours degree programme just yet.This English Literature and Politics BA (Hons) course enables you to study both English Literature and Politics equally at the same level. Don't worry, studying joint honours doesn't mean more work. You'll study the same number of credits as a single honours student, but just take fewer modules in each of the subjects. There are lots of reasons why students choose a joint honours qualification. Just some include: that you have two subject areas of interest, that you want to explore something new alongside a core subject area or that you want to keep your career options open to a range of professions.Our English Literature programme will introduce you to a range of literary themes, genres and theories. You will explore key trends and movements and develop an understanding of historical, thematic and interdisciplinary approaches to literary interpretation. The major historical periods are represented, as are influential, exciting and thought-provoking texts from all the major literary genres. You will benefit from a firm grounding in key works from the Anglophone canon, whilst also having the opportunity to develop specific interests in the study of contemporary literature across a range of themes such as gender and race. You will gain the critical understanding, cultural awareness and analytical skills to prepare you for a career in a wide variety of sectors.Covering a broad range of critical and contemporary issues, our exciting and innovative Sociology programme introduces you to the many diverse and contentious sociological perspectives that try to explain the world around you. Our modules encourage you to critically examine contemporary social change, to question the reality and representations of the social and cultural forces which mould us, and to evaluate the nature of society itself. The study of social relations, processes and structures is undertaken historically, in comparative focus and with relevance to many of the key issues facing contemporary societies. Within this, considerable emphasis is also given to the importance of developing those theoretical and conceptual tools appropriate to the understanding of these social processes and structures, and to the different theoretical and methodological approaches which frame their investigation.
