Literature and History with a Placement Year

Course summary

Overview Do you love learning about the past and the stories we tell ourselves about it? Do you want to know more about how fact and fiction interconnect? Do you want to bring the past and present together in new and innovative ways? Then join us on this dynamic History and English Literature degree! Studying literature and history together will give you a unique window on the world. You'll be a sensitive literary reader of historical sources with a deep understanding of how social, cultural and political contexts shape the written word. You'll have the chance to explore topics from medieval history to contemporary fiction. You'll begin your English and history degree by developing a foundation in both areas. As you progress, you'll be able to decide the balance between your two subjects. You might take an equal number of modules in both. Or you might start to specialise in one or the other according to your growing interests. Either way, inspirational and committed lecturers will support your learning in both subjects. Your home will be the medieval city of Norwich: the 'City of Stories'. Norwich is a UNESCO City of Literature, rich in historical and cultural artefacts. It's also a lively cultural centre with a vibrant literary and performance community. You might find yourself attending an event at the National Centre for Writing or exploring astonishing historic documents at the Norfolk Record Office. You'll graduate from your Literature and History degree as a skilled reader and a powerful communicator. You'll have the chance to attend specialist employability events like 'Working With Words'. You might take up job-related opportunities alongside your degree. Like joining UEA's award-winning student newspaper, Concrete! You'll have the adaptable skillset you need to embark upon a range of exciting careers. Our graduates now work in industries such as heritage, marketing, teaching and publishing. On this version of the course, you’ll have the exciting opportunity to spend your third year studying at one of our partner institutions across the globe.
