Course summary

TEF Silver

University of Wolverhampton has opted into the TEF and received a Silver award.

Find out more about the TEF.

This course gives you the chance to develop and further extend your combined interests in English language and literature. You will learn about the forms and functions of English and examine the use of language in its social and cultural context, while exploring a range of literary and non-literary texts from the Renaissance to the present day and from the West Indies to the West Midlands. The Foundation year prepares students for university level study. Successful completion of our Foundation course permits access to any of our Humanities or Media BA (Hons) degree courses, which include English, English Language, Creative Writing, Linguistics, Media, Philosophy and Religious Studies — many of which can be taken singly as specialist degrees or together as ‘joint’ degree routes. The Foundation year begins with modules aimed at providing transferable study skills and then, in the second semester, gives students the opportunity to study more specialist modules, with a focus on various aspects of Humanities and Media. Throughout the programme, you will be given the theoretical, philosophical and contextual tools with which to critically examine the process of linguistic analysis and literary interpretation. Upon completion you'll be able to make informed judgements about how linguistic structures and literary texts shape our existing social practices and notions of cultural capital. .
