Frequently asked questions
Can I study Language and Literature alongside the single subjects?
Unfortunately, not, as this course contains elements of the other two, if you want to study English, you can study Language alongside Literature. However, you cannot take either single subject alongside the combined Lang/Lit course.
I want to be a journalist – is this as valued as the single subjects?
Absolutely. Either is a viable option. Sheffield do a great course where many language and literature students have studied. It is also as valid for anyone wishing to study English at undergraduate level.
What other subjects does it go well with?
Usually, Language and Literature students study Law, Psychology, Sociology, History or Modern Foreign Languages. However, due to the academic nature and ability to synthesise information, Language goes well with most subjects.
Why the combined subject and not the two singles?
It’s all a question of choice. Some people may wish to do both, but that takes up two option blocks. The combined allows a study of similar skills yet only uses one. This gives students a chance to widen the breadth of other subjects studied.
