English Literature and Music (BA)

  • WQ33

3 years (Full-time) / n/a (Part-time) / n/a (Distance / E-Learning)

The Joint Honours degree in English Literature and Music provides the opportunity to specialise in two university honours subjects. Many students find joint honours both stimulating and rewarding as they observe similarities and differences in the two subjects. Often there are complementary issues and perspectives as well as skills that link the subjects, be they critical analysis, historical contexts or recent research. The School of English, Communication and Philosophy and the School of Music offer challenging programmes of modules in each subject, supported by a friendly atmosphere and excellent staff-student relations.

For fuller information about the two subjects, please visit the two separate subject entries on Course Finder. The flexibility of the programme allows students to specialise and develop their own interests, whilst acquiring a solid, broad-based education and developing vital transferable skills, ready for entry into the graduate job market.
