Course summary

Reading inspiring works of literature is one of life’s great pleasures, but we’ll make sure that we go beyond enjoyment to give you the chance to develop some incredibly useful skills while you’re studying what you enjoy. Add to that the chance to learn another language and you’ll have every opportunity to make yourself attractive to potential employers once your studies are over. * We offer a wide range of module options to choose from, diverse forms of coursework assessment (but no exams), and excellent employment prospects. * Our team of academic staff are ranked in the top 5 in the UK for the quality of their research publications (REF 2014). * 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/ Our English Literature 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 contemporary poetry and science fiction, you’ll be able to indulge your tastes and hopefully gain some new ones too. Studying a foreign language alongside your literary studies will give you a unique perspective on the importance of language and give you the opportunity to learn more about the societies and cultures of the countries where these languages are spoken. This will further open up the world of literature by giving you the opportunity to explore writers’ work in their own languages. You’ll study two language options from a variety of modern language modules depending on your prior knowledge and experience. Options include French, German and Spanish. With their critical thinking abilities, rigour, and wide range of transferable skills, English Literature graduates are extremely attractive to employers. And in a globally-connected market, those with a passion for languages can give their employability the edge by studying English Literature with a Modern Language. Studies show that the number of students choosing modern languages is in decline, even though graduates in this area are highly sought-after by employers. This degree gives you the opportunity to boost your career prospects. And by studying these two subjects alongside each other, you’ll be immersing yourself in different rich and fascinating languages, literatures and cultures, giving you a unique perspective on the world. ~ Dr Sarah Falcus, Contemporary Literature Lecturer. Additional Costs: Placements The nature and suitability of your work placement is decided in consultation with your tutors. You are responsible for making your own arrangements for any travel or incurred costs in relation to the placement module, or in relation to the optional placement year if you chose to undertake one as part of your degree.
