For the Classics and English course at University of Nottingham, you will study two core modules introducing the history and culture of Greece and Rome and an in-depth module on one topic (eg. Alexander). Beginners' language or Interpreting Ancient Literature are among the optional modules.
In English you have a choice of three core modules from the areas of English language and applied linguistics, English literature 1500 to the present, medieval languages and literatures, and drama and performance.
In classics, you combine a wide range of optional modules exploring ancient literature, art and history, with an extended source study, to prepare you for third year dissertation work.
In English, you will choose from a wide range of options to develop deeper understanding of the issues and critical approaches across at least two areas of the discipline, depending on what areas of literature, language and drama and performance most interest you.
In classics, you will either develop and pursue your own interests through a dissertation or take a Special Subject which involves in-depth study in seminars on a staff-member’s topic of special expertise.
In English, you choose from a wide range of modules specialising in key areas of the subject. You have the same wide range of final year options in English as single honours students.

No matter what your initial choice may be, you will find that the skills and knowledge that you have developed during your degree will have equipped you for the demanding and often highly changeable nature of the 21st-century workplace.
