This is a combined course, where you study English Literature alongside Education Studies. This programme offers the opportunity to study an exciting range of modules, blending the study of classic texts and literary traditions with current theoretical models for understanding literature as a dynamic, global phenomenon. Our course is renowned for its inspirational teaching and research excellence. In the 2013 National Student Survey (Source: Unistats), 93 per cent of students agreed that staff had made the subject interesting. The course also provides you with a broad and balanced knowledge and understanding of the principal features of education in a wide range of contexts. It encourages you to engage with fundamental questions concerning the aims and values of education and its relationship to societies and to participate in current debates relevant to education.
In Year 1 modules include Culture, Criticism and Literature, World Literature, Critical Theory, Shakespeare, Exploring Learning, Education in a World of Change, and Education and Childhood through Film and Literature. In Year 2 core modules include American Literature and Culture, The Literature of Space, The Novel and Modernity, and Culture, Crime and Transgression, Core Texts in Education, Children and the Media, and Literature for Young Children. Final year specialist optional modules offer intensive, small-group teaching, with titles including Becoming a Reader, Education in International Development, and Controversial Issues in Education. You will also take either the Contemporary Literature (Synoptic) module or the Dissertation Module, working one-to-one with a specialist lecturer.

Oxford Brookes was amazing! The campus was beautiful, really modern and clean, and the facilities there were great. Our course had a good mix of practical applied work and theoretical stuff in lectures, and it really gave me a deep understanding that I could use after my degree. Speaking of, the Careers service was also top notch, and they had loads of stuff going on that helped me walk straight into graduate employment. The student support services were also really comprehensive, with lots of financial and accommodation advice which helped ease my mind a lot.
