The programme will give you the skills and knowledge for a range of careers including, teaching, social work, education policy, welfare and working with children and families. Throughout the degree, you will be taught using real-world case studies that are relevant to education.

You will be taught by research-active lecturers, who are excited to share their passion with you.

You will also attend workshops with industry professionals who will discuss key developments in the profession. You'll attend field trips across the UK in the 'Critical Perspectives in Childhood and Youth' module. You can also attend an international field trip as part of the 'International Perspectives in Education' module. These trips will give real-life context to your studies, linking the theory you learn to the world of work. When you study literature you are not just reading and thinking about great books, you are also asking questions about society’s past and future, and ultimately interrogating your own past and future. During your time here you will be studying literature from the Renaissance to the present day, all within the vicinity of Horace Walpole’s Gothic mansion, Strawberry Hill House, which is located on our campus. The programme has a traditional and rigorous core of compulsory modules covering: Tragedy, Critical Theory, Renaissance Literature (including Shakespeare), Romanticism and Modernism. The literary training provided ensures that you will cover the conventional ‘classics’ meticulously.
