Course summary

About the course

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).
  • 100% of graduates from this subject are in work and/or further study fifteen months after graduating (HESA Graduate Outcomes 17/18, UK domiciled graduates).
  • We get you out of the classroom on a range of exciting fieldtrips.
  • Every year students also have the chance to get involved in events at the Huddersfield Literature Festival.

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.

Your Career

As an English Literature graduate, you are valued for the advanced skills you have developed in critical thinking, researching, independent study, communicating and arguing persuasively. In a competitive global marketplace, by combining your major subject choice with a modern language you could add extra value to your skills and knowledge. Many potential employers have overseas offices and do business around the world. Developing the ability to speak a foreign language is likely to help to improve your employability prospects.

Our graduates have gone on to work in teaching, PR, social media, script writing and law. Others have opted for PGCE study and have become teachers, or continued their studies at Master's level.
