Cardiff Metropolitan University has opted into the TEF and received a Silver award.
The study of English at Cardiff Met forms part of the BA Humanities and Education Joint Honours programme within the Cardiff School of Education and Social Policy. The English element of the degree will engage with your enthusiasm for reading and literature and introduce you to advanced critical thinking in the form of theoretical practice. You will analyse a wide range of texts (including film and digital narratives) to explore the cutting edge of English as well as its canonical texts. A mixture of thematic and chronological modules ensures a good grounding in genre, context and period. You will challenge assumptions about the production of narratives and their relationship to questions of authority and identity. The degree has a strong contemporary focus and provides highly valued employability skills. Modules are taught by a research active team (including Dr Carmen Casaliggi, Dr Elizabeth English, and Dr Nick Taylor-Collins) who have research interests in Romanticism, Modernist and Contemporary Literature, with specialisms in Irish literature, women's writing, and the work of John Ruskin. The Media part of the degree combines theoretical analysis of media, such as film, TV and digital media with practical skills in digital media, media writing and journalism, with particular focus given to 'specialist journalism', such as film, music, fashion and sports journalism. Taught by academic staff who are current practitioners and researchers, this distinctive degree subject also has a strong employability focus allowing students to combine theoretical perspectives with practical vocational skills. Students will graduate with strong communication and analytical skills that are highly valued in today’s employment market. These skills are reinforced by work placements. As part of a Joint honours degree the programme is well integrated and encourages students to make connections across the curriculum. As well as a rich and varied academic focus, the course also benefits from exciting extra-curricula opportunities, including visiting media professionals and cultural excursions. Students also have the opportunity to build a portfolio of work by contributing to and regularly publishing work in a number of University and external publications.
