What will I study? English Literature English literature is naturally an ideal subject for those with a passion for books, reading, and the spoken word. We encounter literature every day - in books, magazines, poetry, advertising, plays, song lyrics, and TV boxsets. The ability to analyse these texts and their subtle meanings is a skill that could lead to a range of interesting careers. At Farnborough, you will read a range of stimulating and diverse texts. This ranges from the Renaissance period to the modern day while learning about historical contexts, gender and literature, poetic language and more along the way. A degree in English will hone your own communication skills and encourage creative writing – skills that can help set you apart from other graduates when starting your new career. Modern History Looking to the past is essential in beginning to understand the way of the modern world. Recent history has seen devastating world wars, new technologies and shifts in world powers. By studying modern history with us, you will start to uncover a number of interesting topics and events that continue to shape the world we live in. Our modern history degree covers topics as diverse as the Victorians, sexualities and politics. Along the way, you will also discover how to understand and research the past in great depth.
