The combination of English and History uniquely positions you to be able to interrogate a variety of literary texts (including film, theatre, poetry and prose) and place them within their historical, social and political contexts. Both departments offer modules that explore literary and historical cultures from the Early Modern period up until the contemporary moment.
Our world-leading research, active student community and civic ethos makes Sheffield one of the world's most exciting places to study English and History. Our academic staff are experts in their field and use their cutting-edge research to inform their teaching and the content of the modules that you'll study. They're also passionate, dedicated teachers who work tirelessly to ensure their students are inspired.
The academic aptitude and practical skills you will develop throughout your degree will give you a huge range of career options after university. Our graduates have gone onto careers in journalism, the charity sector, marketing and communications, theatre and television production, PR, copywriting, publishing, teaching, web development, accountancy, and speech and language therapy, among many other fields.
