BA(Hons) English and History gives you a deep understanding of the relationship between historical contexts and literature.
Become an expert reader of primary texts and an excellent writer, able to respond clearly to a broad range of issues. Develop your independent thinking, communication and critical thinking abilities - valuable assets in the workplace. Advance your skills in traditional and multimedia research and graduate highly employable and ready for a rewarding career or further study.
Get involved in Bristol's vibrant and diverse cultural scene. We have strong links with Bristol Museums, Galleries and Archives (BMGA), including M Shed, Watershed, the Arnos Vale Cemetery Trust and the National Trust. Embark on a placement with a local cultural organisation in your third year and gain valuable real world skills, experience and contacts.
We are internationally recognised for conducting leading research and both English and History at UWE Bristol are consistently ranked highly for student satisfaction in the National Student Survey (NSS).
Youâll graduate ready for a wide range of rewarding careers in publishing, teaching, advertising, marketing and communications, charity, the civil service, broadcasting, tourism and more. You could also go on to an MA in English or History - UWE Bristol currently offers a Master's in Research (MRes) with pathways for English and History.

It's just like Skins… Seriously though, Bristol's got so much on, there's loads of street art, all the independent shops are so cool, and you can cycle everywhere. Everyone is so chilled out and lovely! The first year accommodation was also amazing, so lively and close to campus. Pro-tip = The Frenchay Farmer’s Market is great to pick up cheap fruit and veg. The uni also gave the opportunity to study a year abroad in Grenada, which was seriously the highlight of my degree. And Darth Vader went to school here!
The university is good, but not outstanding. I have heard from friends that UWE excels in some areas if study (business school for example) but studying an arts degree can have a taught experience that is less satisfying. That being said I do think that the university does leave you well versed in your subject of choice as learning and well prepared for a future career if you use the extensive tools provided for you.
