Trosolwg y cwrs

This single honours degree allows you to combine English Language and Literature in a cohesive and creative way. The first year is split equally between the two subjects, but in years two and three you will be able to choose to take more of your modules in either language or literature, depending on your own interests and career aspirations.

In English Language, you will be provided with a rigorous grounding in the analysis of the language. You will learn such essential linguistic tools as phonetics, grammar and discourse analysis from those who are helping develop those fields. Since we take a broad approach to language, you will also learn how to analyse the types of multimodal texts (for example combining word, image and sound) that predominate in contemporary media.

English literature offers access to the whole chronological span of English literature, from the Anglo-Saxon period to the 21st century. You will be able to study writing in English from England, Wales, Ireland, Scotland, North America, the Caribbean, India and Australia. In addition, there are modules in creative writing throughout the degree.

The curriculum is not restricted to the printed word – we are intrigued by the connections between literature and film, art, music, history, language, and popular culture, and our teaching reflects these interests.

We offer a challenging course of modules drawn from each subject, supported by a friendly atmosphere and excellent staff-student relationships.

The core ‘Style and Genre’ module introduces you to the study of linguistic style in a broad range of creative and literary texts. The module counts as 10 credits each for Language and Literature.

In English Language you will take one further core module, which covers essential elements of phonetics, grammar and lexical semantics (word meaning), building a common stock of knowledge and understanding.

You will also choose four options across language and literature (either two of each, or three of one and one of the other).

In English language we offer a range of ‘foundation’ modules that provide engaging introductions to key areas of study in English language. The training provided by these modules prepares you to make your choice from the more specialised, research-led ‘extension’ modules in year three.

In English literature you may select from a range of modules based on period, genre or theme, reading a variety of texts in their historical and cultural contexts.

In year three you will choose six modules across Language and Literature (either two of each, or three of one and one of the other.

The year three English Language modules are offered in the subject areas in which our staff are currently working, giving you a unique insight into some of the most up-to-date and innovative research. These modules often require you to gather and analyse your own data.

Currently the modules address areas such as communication disorders, forensic linguistics, persuasive communication, language learning and teaching, language and ideology, phonology, corpus linguistics and media discourse.

There are also opportunities to undertake a project or dissertation (20 credits) in a subject of your choice in either of the two subjects, or an extended dissertation (40 credits) on a topic that combines both language and literature (subject to performance in year two).

By year three of English Literature you will have gained an experience of a variety of literary periods, topics, genres and approaches, developing your critical faculties and your skills in analysing texts and contexts. You will therefore be in an excellent position to choose between a range of more specialised modules in which you will be able to engage with current issues in research and scholarship in relation to authors and texts both well-known and possibly less well-known to you.

Mae'r Brifysgol wedi ymrwymo i ddarparu amrywiaeth eang o opsiynau modiwl lle’n bosibl. Ond byddwch yn ymwybodol er y byddwn yn gwneud pob ymdrech i gynnig dewis, gall hyn gael ei gyfyngu mewn rhai amgylchiadau. Y rheswm am hyn yw'r ffaith mai dim ond nifer cyfyngedig o leoedd sydd ar gael ar rai modiwlau, a gaiff eu dyrannu ar sail y cyntaf i'r felin. Mae'n ofynnol i fodiwlau eraill sicrhau isafswm nifer o fyfyrwyr cyn gallu eu cynnal, er mwyn gwneud yn siŵr y gellir cyflwyno addysg o ansawdd priodol. Gall modiwlau gael eu cyfyngu oherwydd gwrthdaro yn yr amserlen hefyd, ac er bod y Brifysgol yn ymdrechu i amharu cyn lleied â phosibl ar eich dewis, byddai'n syniad da i chi ofyn am gyngor gan yr Ysgol berthnasol am y dewisiadau modiwl sydd ar gael.
