  • BA (Hons), Full-time , Duration: 3 Years
Course Summary:
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. 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 Jacobean drama or contemporary poetry, you'll be able to indulge your tastes and hopefully gain some new ones too. Your choices on the History side of your degree are equally wide ranging. We'll cover the cultural, societal, historical and political impact of events and eras that have had a huge impact on today's civilisation. Along the way you'll be able to study conflicts, empires, disasters and more, from the medieval period right through to contemporary society. The course is an equal mixture of both subjects. The topics we cover aren't just exciting and rewarding to study, they could help you develop some transferable skills that employers are looking for too. You could go on to a career in fields such as teaching, librarianship, archives, the media, industry, the voluntary sector, PR, law and accountancy. In your second year, you'll also have the opportunity to take a placement for five weeks. Recent graduates have taken placements at Wilsons Solicitors, Kirklees TV, West Yorkshire Archives Service and The Royal Armouries Museum. The ERASMUS+ exchange scheme also offers a short-term opportunity to study abroad at one of our partner universities, including institutions in Ghent, Paris, Granada, Malaga, the USA and Hannover. You'll join classes and receive credits toward your degree at the same time.

Huddersfield was a challenging and fun experience for me. The lecturers really inspired me to think creatively and forced me to consider new perspectives. The city life is ok, there’s not tonnes of clubbing but you can always hop on the train to Leeds or Manchester for a mad one. I prefer to hang out in the pub after lectures, anyway. There are loads of great facilities here too, the library is particularly amazing. The careers service is also incredibly helpful, I walked straight into a job after graduation!
