About

The English Language and English Literature (Hons) programme of University of Worcester will provide you with opportunities to develop your all-round understanding of the English language – how it is spoken and written and the literature it has produced.

Overview

The English Language and English Literature (Hons) programme of University of Worcester allows you to develop skills in close and creative reading, theoretical concepts and a critical awareness of the relationship between texts and their contexts.

English Language at Worcester allows you to see how language shapes our worlds, brings thoughts to life and forms our identities through linguistic and stylistic choices.

Key Features

  • Develop evaluation and reflection of linguistic and stylistic choices
  • Study diverse literatures emanating from the sixteenth through to the twenty-first centuries – and encompassing both ‘canonical’ and ‘marginal’ texts
  • Clear focus on the socio-cultural aspects of language use and an emphasis on the development of research skills with opportunities to present research outcomes through a student conference in the final year
  • Opportunities to play an active role in local and regional literature festivals, related events and a work project module

Where could it take you?

Our English Language and English Literature degree provides continuous opportunities to develop employability skills and includes work experience options, a credited work project module, and a career and professional development module. There is a range of opportunities to study for a semester abroad in Europe and the USA in the second semester of the second year. 

Many graduates of English Language and English Literature will take a postgraduate education course as a fourth year of study and enter the teaching profession. Others will find that the skills acquired through the study of English Language are particularly highly regarded in all professions where good communication skills are prized such as publishing, journalism, public relations, human resources and web-based communication.

Graduates also often take a certificate in TEFL and become teachers of English as a second language at home or abroad. Those graduates who achieve particularly good results in their first degree may choose to progress to a Masters course, which will then often lead to a career as a researcher or further study to PhD. Many students progress to careers requiring good communication skills such as Public Relations or develop research careers with media or publishing companies.
