Year 1

  • The first year entails study in both disciplines as well as an introductory course in cultural studies that is based on their inter-relationship.

Year 2 and Year 3

  • The degree incorporates considerable flexibility in years 2 and 3, allowing you to construct a programme that reflects your own intellectual interests and enthusiasms. For example, you may wish to concentrate some of your work around the literature and history of a particular period: the Middle Ages; the Renaissance; the Restoration; the Eighteenth Century; the Victorian Era; Modernism; the Contemporary. Alternatively, you may prefer to develop a specialised knowledge of the history of one of the literary genres: drama; poetry; prose, or you may wish to select modules that deal with topics such as feminist theory or visual culture. Literature-based modules may focus on a particular genre (e.g. Contemporary Fiction), or a theme (e.g. Literature and Desire), or a historical period (e.g. Modernism), or an author (e.g. Chaucer).  History-based modules cover the medieval, early modern and contemporary periods, with a range of both broad-based modules and more specialised investigations of particular topics in English and British history. Examples of history modules which have been available to students on this programme include: Anglo-Saxon England, c.500-1066; Late Medieval Religion and Society in England; Early Modern England; The Rise and Fall of British Power; Medicine and Society Before the 17th Century; Women and Society in Modern Britain.

The provision of two free choice modules in year 2 enables you to introduce other disciplines (e.g. film and visual arts) and/or to adjust the balance of the two strands to your own needs.
