English Language and Literature BA Hons
Do you want to study a wide range of authors, genres, historical periods, literary movements, techniques, and critical approaches? Would you like to combine this with discovering how the language at the heart of key literary texts actually functions? A joint English Language and Literature degree could be the answer.
You’ll be taught by one of the country’s largest Linguistics and English Language departments and an English Literature department that provides a vibrant array of authors, genres, historical periods, literary movements, techniques, and critical approaches.
The core modules in your first year will give you a good foundation in English Language and English Literature. We’ll cover plays, films, short stories, novels, and poetry from the sixteenth century to the modern-day. You’ll study lexis, grammar, and phonetics as well as descriptive concepts such as accents and dialects.
In your second year, you’ll study core modules of Stylistics and The Theory and Practice of Criticism. You’ll also be able to choose from modules ranging from British Romanticism to The Language of Advertising. In your final year, you are free to specialize in genres and periods that especially interest you such as Advanced English Phonetics, Victorian Gothic or Forensic Linguistics.
