The English Literature and Sociology (Hons) programme offered at the Aston University will provide you with an in-depth understanding of social processes, inequalities, organisational dynamics and inter-group relationships. It combines an introduction to specific skills such as research design, use of comparative method, written and oral presentation with an emphasis on social change. Strengths of the programme include its research-led nature and focus on key contemporary social issues, social policy and decision making, global trends and international comparisons.
You will also have the opportunity to produce a substantial piece of individual work in the form of a dissertation on an agreed topic of your choice.
Learning, teaching & assessment
You will be involved in: lectures, tutorials, seminars, e-seminars, small-group work, project work and independent study. There are also opportunities for group and collaborative work. Students undertake a major piece of independent research in final year.
You will be allocated a Personal Tutor when you join us and you will be encouraged to make regular contact with them throughout your studies. Personal Tutors are there to help discuss academic and, in some cases, personal issues. Personal Tutors can also often offer support by writing references for placement/graduate employment and academic research.
