Why study English with education? • English at UWTSD combines a commitment to the large historical picture of English studies (from Beowulf to Tom Wolfe) with a responsiveness to new directions and concerns of the subject precipitated by developments in critical and cultural theory. • Choose from a range of focused areas from Anglo Saxon Heroic literature to Victorian narrative poetry; the bloody revenge dramas of the Renaissance to contemporary bestsellers; from the realist novels of the 19th century to contemporary poetry and postmodern novels. • This degree combines the study of English with a focus on developing the skills, understanding, and capacities required to work in any educational setting, from teaching to museum work. • We take an immersive approach to learning offering a diverse range of teaching approaches, including lectures, seminars, tutorials and workshop sessions. • You will attend small-group classes with a focus on discussion and learning activities to encourage the self-development and critical reflection accepted as key to the development of personal and professional capacities.
Taking into account that student choices and requirements can differ radically, as well as ensuring a rounded knowledge of English generally, the scheme offers modules covering a wide range of topics and issues. Some of the areas of study include, for example, the Renaissance, contemporary writing, romantic poetry and prose, medieval literature, and archiving. Options to study abroad may also be available. Other areas of study include conceptions of education, children, rights and responsibilities, humanities in education, and pedagogical theory and analyses. A range of modules in other disciplines is offered alongside your main subject modules. You could take modules in, for example, Classics, Philosophy, Creative Writing or any of our other Humanities subjects, whichever Humanities degree-programme you choose
The programme is assessed in a variety of ways and will include several of the following type of assessment: essays of 1000 to 4000 words in length, document analyses, book reviews, short reports and reflective journals, timed tests, take home exams, field journals, posters, group and individual presentations, dissertations of 10,000 words, wikis, commentaries and film evaluations.
