Trosolwg y cwrs

This rich and rewarding single honours degree allows you to combine your passions for English language and literature.

In English literature the entire chronological span is open to you, from the Anglo-Saxon period to the 21st century. So too are all genres, from contemporary, crime and historical fiction to poetry, drama, film, music and creative writing. Our curriculum is far from restricted to the printed word, exploring the connections between literature and film, art, music, history, language, and popular culture. This variety allows you to shape your degree to suit, whether your interest lies in periods and genres or literary study with analysis of other cultural forms.

Distinct for our focus on the intersection of language with culture, society, politics and mind, English language offers a rigorous grounding in the analysis of the language, taught by internationally-respected experts. You will learn such essential linguistic tools as phonetics, grammar and discourse analysis from those who are helping develop those fields. Supported by our broad approach to language, you will develop the ability to analyse the multimodal text combining word image and sound that predominates in so much of contemporary media.

Bringing a wealth of expertise, our lecturers will share latest thinking in the classroom from the digital humanities to gender, from the gothic to postcolonial studies and far beyond, drawn from their research in our centres of excellence including the Centre for Language and Communication Research. Outside of the classroom, our public platforms Cardiff BookTalk and Cardiff Poetry Experiment are popular and hugely engaging.

This diverse degree also gives you the flexibility to shape your path as you progress. After an equal split in Year One, you can choose more modules from either discipline to suit your interests and career aspirations.

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.
