Cardiff Metropolitan University has opted into the TEF and received a Silver award.
Our joint honours degree programme within the Cardiff School of Education and Social Policy, offers students the unique opportunity to combine subjects from within the Humanities and Education subject areas.
The English element of the degree will engage with your enthusiasm for reading and literature and introduce you to advanced critical thinking in the form of theoretical practice. You will analyse a wide range of texts (including film and digital narratives) to explore the cutting edge of English as well as its canonical texts. A mixture of thematic and chronological modules ensures a good grounding in genre, context and period. You will challenge assumptions about the production of narratives and their relationship to questions of authority and identity. The degree has a strong contemporary focus and provides highly valued employability skills. Modules are taught by a research active team (including Dr Carmen Casaliggi and Dr Elizabeth English) who have research interests in Romanticism, Modernist and Contemporary Literature, gender and sexuality, women's writing, children's literature, fantasy literature, science and literature, with specialisms in the work of John Ruskin, DH Lawrence and J. R. R. Tolkien.
The Drama side of the degree introduces you to a range of theatre genres, playwrights and practitioners using both textual and practical exploration. You will be encouraged to consider the influences from which theatre is made, experiment with performance styles and analyse theatre practice. In addition you have the opportunity to develop your own skills as a theatre maker, as both performer and director. You will also explore how drama can be applied to a range of community and educational settings, which will complement your work-based placement in year two.
