Course Information

This course is a great choice if you are thinking of going on to do a Postgraduate Certificate in Education (PGCE) after your degree but don’t yet want to commit to primary or secondary level teaching.

You’ll get a very good grounding in the key National Curriculum subject of English Literature and learn about key educational ideas and theories, gaining a wide knowledge of key educational ideas and theories, major literary periods and genres, and the use of language.

In addition, you will have the opportunity to choose units which are of particular interest to you and which will have relevance for your future career.

During your degree you will have the opportunity to explore the role of language in society, contemporary and historical notions of childhood and children, study the work of Shakespeare and his contemporaries, the philosophy of education and choose from a range of English and Education Studies options and a dissertation based on your interests and your future career plans.
