Studied in combination, these two subject areas will provide you with the opportunity to develop your all-round understanding of English – how it is spoken and written and how that has changed over time and in different places; the literature that it has produced and the continual processes of evolution that determine understanding and readings of it. The course provides an ideal foundation for graduates who wish to become teachers; it develops a rounded, transferable set of competencies and skills that offer sound preparation for a wide variety of jobs and career paths; it offers good preparation for progression to postgraduate academic study.
Taught by academics who are acknowledged experts in their fields, both subject areas will hone your critical and intellectual faculties, supporting your articulacy and enabling you persuasively to develop and present your ideas. In combination, English Language Studies and English Literature provide you with exciting opportunities to study not only how we communicate with one another but also to consider how our communication shapes, structures and responds to contemporary societies and cultures (with 'contemporary' embracing not just the cultures of your today but the todays of diverse others, from speakers, readers and writers in 17th century England to those of 20th century America). Studying them in combination will be for you if your interest lies in the ways in which human beings communicate with one another, how they make sense of their society and cultures, and how communication itself shapes the meanings and ideologies of our ever changing world.
Application deadline details:
I love Worcester! Everyone is so friendly and chilled out. The uni's small but growing quickly, and the small teaching groups mean you get real quality time with lecturers and they can address all of your concerns and questions. The Hive, aka the library, is full of really useful resources and I ended spending far too much time in there. Worcester has a nice little student scene, with plenty of pubs, coffee shops and places to hang out in it’s beautiful streets. You can even borrow a bike from the uni to get around!
