Cardiff Metropolitan University has opted into the TEF and received a Silver award.
Our joint honours degree programme within the Cardiff School of Education, offers students the unique opportunity to combine subjects from within the Humanities and Education subject areas. 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 Creative Writing element of your degree will develop your thinking through textual and practical exploration, and equip you with a wide variety of writing skills and methodologies in relation to different genres (fiction, poetry, scriptwriting, non-fiction, etc.). You will be encouraged to consider textual influence and experiment with different styles. At the core of the degree is your development as a writer and the honing of skills that you can use to find jobs in a variety of creative industries such as publishing, journalism and marketing. You'll cultivate your individual voice and writing style through revision and editing, and share your writing and thinking with your fellow students in a supportive and evaluative environment. We encourage and support our students to seek publication and to develop a writing portfolio for prospective employers.
