Why study English with Heritage? • English at UWTSD combines a commitment to the large historical picture of English studies (from Beowulf to Tom Wolfe) with a responsiveness to new directions and concerns of the subject precipitated by developments in critical and cultural theory. • Choose from a range of focused areas from Anglo Saxon Heroic literature to Victorian narrative poetry; the bloody revenge dramas of the Renaissance to contemporary bestsellers; from the realist novels of the 19th century to contemporary poetry and postmodern novels. • Heritage Studies explores different aspects of Heritage and the Heritage-related agencies, institutions and subjects across a range of disciplines including history, archaeology and philosophy. • You will attend small-group classes with a focus on discussion and learning activities to encourage the self-development and critical reflection accepted as key to the development of personal and professional capacities. • We take an immersive approach to learning offering a diverse range of teaching approaches, including lectures, seminars, tutorials and workshop sessions.
Taking into account that student choices and requirements can differ radically, as well as ensuring a rounded knowledge of English generally, the scheme offers modules covering a wide range of topics and issues. Some of the areas of study include, for example, the Renaissance, contemporary writing, romantic poetry and prose, medieval literature, and archiving. Options to study abroad may also be available. Other areas of study include heritage marketing, museums and representation, building and architectural history, sustainable development, and the conservation of buildings. A range of modules in other disciplines is offered alongside your main subject modules. You could take modules in, for example, Classics, Philosophy, Creative Writing or any of our other Humanities subjects, whichever Humanities degree-programme you choose.
The programme is assessed in a variety of ways and will include several of the following type of assessment: essays of 1000 to 4000 words in length, document analyses, book reviews, short reports and reflective journals, timed tests, take home exams, field journals, posters, group and individual presentations, dissertations of 10,000 words, wikis, commentaries and film evaluations.
