Why choose this course?
If you enjoy investigating the past as well as reading and discussing books and ideas, why not choose this course and divide your studies between these two complementary subjects. The Foundation Year in Humanities will introduce students to a diverse range of themes and activities from the disciplines of History, English Literature, Creative Writing, Theatre and Media.
- study themes from Medieval Welsh, British and European history, through to Renaissance and modern history alongside English
- combine analysis of the created worlds of fiction with investigations of the social and political realities that produced them
- develop the skills to become fine-tuned critics, analytical thinkers and writers, as they open up a wide range of career opportunities
Doing an English degree helped me to develop so many different skills... Also, the course encouraged me to think critically and analytically about things, and to question and interrogate the world around me.
