The English side of the course covers all literature written in the English language from its origins in Anglo-Saxon through to works produced in English-speaking countries across the world in the present day. The Modern Language side of the course will give you practical linguistic training, encourage students to think coherently about language as a subject of study and introduce an extensive and fascinating field of Western literature and thought. The course is extremely flexible. In the first year students will do practical work in their chosen language and study a selection of important texts from its literature. On the English side, students will be introduced to the conceptual and technical tools used in the study of language and literature, and to a wide range of different critical assumptions and approaches. Students will also do tutorial work on either early medieval, Victorian or modern literature. In the second year, students will continue with language work in their modern language as well as studying literature from a wide range of periods in English and in their language. The third year of this four-year course is spent abroad. On return, students will choose from a range of special option papers in both English and Modern Languages, and in comparative literature.
