Course summary

Summary Study literature, rhetoric, and stylistics, compare texts across forms and periods from 1550 to the present, and gain a deeper understanding of the contexts from which that literature emerged.

You’ll study rhetoric, stylistics, and compare texts across forms and periods. You’ll develop your knowledge of the contexts of these texts in your History minor, and learn to reflect critically on the complex, and often contradictory, information available to us now about the past.

An admissions adviser will review your application and will decide if they would like to invite you for an interview.

Interviews also give you an opportunity to ascertain whether you enjoy the tutorial method of teaching in the ‘taster tutorial’ setting of our interviews.
