Combined Degrees Most Combined Degrees allow you to adapt the weighting of each by 25% after the first year, helping you to keep your options open. Please note, however, students studying either a Business or Economics pathway in combination with another subject cannot increase from 25% to 50% or from 50% to 75% and it is not possible to transfer from a 50% to 75% Law. To find out more about your programme choice, please go first to our Combined Degrees webpages: liverpool.ac.uk/study/undergraduate/courses/combined-degrees. This programme is available with either a Year in China or a Year Abroad. The Year in China offers undergraduate students the opportunity to spend one year at our joint venture, Xi'an Jiaotong-Liverpool University (XJTLU), following XJTLU's BA China Studies degree classes. XJTLU is a fully English-speaking university, located in Suzhou. The Year Abroad offers students the opportunity to spend a full academic year studying at one of our partner universities around the world, following a mixture of culture and/or discipline-related modules. If you wish to study this programme with a Year in China or a Year Abroad you will have the opportunity to apply after you arrive at Liverpool. This programme is available with a Year in Industry. Year Three is spent on a paid placement within an organisation in industry, broadly defined. You will be supported by the School of the Arts and the Department throughout, and your reflexive written account of the experience will contribute towards your final degree result. Please note it is not possible to study both a Year in Industry and a Year Abroad on this programme.
The first year is a foundation course designed to give you the basic skills and tools for the advanced study of English literature & language. You will have the opportunity to study English lit. from various periods and literary genres. Other modules help you to develop your reading and critical skills, and introduce you to modern approaches to the study of English language. In the 2nd and 3rd years, you will have the freedom to plan the specific path that you follow through the programme. The 2nd yr focuses on the major periods of English lit. and core aspects of English Language study; to ensure that your study has appropriate breadth, you must take at least one unit devoted to pre-1800 literature (this can also be taken at Level 3). In the 3rd year the emphasis is on specialisation within different genres and learning to work more independently - for instance, a dissertation on a topic of your choice provides you with the opportunity to explore that topic in depth.
