Put the text into context by combining a love of literature with a passion for the past. This is a degree for innovative thinkers who will thrive on the stimulating and thought-provoking combination of English literature and history. Closely linked by ideas, approaches and source materials, you will learn about the relationship between the two subjects by critically and creatively focusing on particular time periods or themes.

At each level, you will study modules from our English Literature and History degrees, as well as tailor-made modules revealing methods and ideas that span the breadth of both subjects.
