Summary

Our foundation year offers the chance to strengthen your skills, knowledge and confidence – with extensive support from our expert staff – before you advance to stage one of your honours degree. It could also be beneficial if you are planning a career change and want to get to grips with aspects of subjects which are new to you.On this exciting and challenging degree, you’ll analyse literature as well as studying the English language. You will consider both in relation to intellectual history, cultural politics and linguistic theory. You can choose the TESOL pathway if you want to teach English to speakers of other languages.WHY CHOOSE THIS COURSE?This English Literature and Language BA will truly expand your mind. You’ll look at a range of cultural expression from across the world and from very different historical periods – you will witness the variety of human experience. We’ll explain the key differences in approach between English Language and English Literature but you’ll also see clearly how they interrelate. Modules include Black Atlantic Literatures, Colonialism and Independence, Modernism, and Language and the Mind: Psycholinguistics.IS THIS COURSE FOR YOU?If you are looking for a course that combines analysis of the English language with study of literary history and the close reading of literature, this is for you. If the thought of teaching English abroad excites you, consider the TESOL pathway.HOW YOU WILL LEARNThrough thought-provoking lectures, seminars and tutorials. There will be plenty of opportunities to discuss and debate ideas. You can also take part in study visits to cinemas, film festivals, theatres, museums, galleries and heritage centres. There’s a big emphasis on developing your research skills, so independent projects are a key part of the second and third years.OPPORTUNITIES AND EXPERIENCESIf you take the TESOL pathway, you will take modules that give you a grounding in TESOL teaching theory and methodology, and then undertake a second-year placement and third-year teaching practice. Non TESOL students can choose to study for a semester in America while TESOL students can take part in summer camps in places like Lithuania and Estonia.CAREERS AND EMPLOYABILITYYou will leave this course as a confident and articulate English Literature and Language graduate, with excellent communication and analytical skills – something that employers need and value. This gives you career prospects in fields ranging from teaching and academia to journalism and publishing, arts management and the creative industries. If you take the TESOL pathway, you can obviously go on to teach English to speakers of other languages in the UK or internationally.
