English and History at University of Sheffield - UCAS

Course summary

English and history is a natural combination, uniquely positioning you to understand and interrogate diverse texts and media from all over the world and place them within their historical, social and political contexts. You'll explore literary and historical cultures from the medieval to the present day, all the while developing your skills as a critical, creative and independent thinker. As a dual honours student, you'll divide your studies between the School of English and the Department of History. Choice and flexibility are at the heart of our teaching, which means you can pursue and develop your own interests. At every level, there is a wide variety of modules to choose from. You will be taught by world-leading experts from both departments. You'll be required to take a minimum number of credits within both departments each year, but how you choose to divide your modules after this is up to you: split your modules evenly between English and History, or choose to weight your degree in favour of one subject or the other. For the English side of your course, you can pursue either an English Literature or an English Language pathway, or take modules from both areas. Research is central to the student experience here in Sheffield. All our teaching is informed by the latest findings, and all our students have the opportunity to carry out their own research project as part of their degree. Outside of your degree, there are many opportunities to develop your interests, insights and critical faculties.
