The course offers you the opportunity to acquire a range of both literary-critical and historical knowledge, develops the ability to deploy and contextualise a number of subject-specific skills in each discipline, and locates these skills and forms of knowledge in relation to one another.**Year 1**In the first year, you will take three modules in English Literature and three modules in History.Examples of optional modules in English:Introduction to DramaIntroduction to the NovelIntroduction to PoetryRomance and the Literature of ChivalryEpic and Literature of LegendClassical and Biblical Backgrounds to English Literature.Examples of optional modules in History:Beyond the Northlands: The Vikings and their WorldDecline and Crisis: Europe 1300-1500Early Modern England: A Social HistorySociety and Culture in China under Ming and Qing DynastiesReformation EuropeThe Century of RevolutionMaking HistoryThe Birth of Western Society, 300-1050 AD.**Year 2**In English, you have a wide choice from among lecture and seminar modules, but must take either Theory and Practice of Literary Criticism or Shakespeare.

In History, the syllabus encourages the detailed study and analysis of historical events, trends and problems by means of a Special Subject (requiring close study of a highly specialised topic using primary source materials) and a Dissertation.
