Education Secondary and English Literature BA (Hons) + PGCE

Education Secondary

You'll explore education from many theoretical and ideological perspectives in your core modules. This in-depth knowledge of the education industry, combined with your specialist subject knowledge, gives you that all-important edge when you embark on your professional education career.

English Literature

We combine the academic study of literature with skill-based modules to create a practical, applied English Literature degree. You’ll learn how to analyse a wide range of literary texts, but you'll also learn practical skills such as:

  • How to pitch an idea for a literary festival
  • How to compile digital teaching resources for schools
  • How to produce an online edition of a historical text.

You'll apply your knowledge and your skills in practical, professional ways, in preparation for the next stage in your career.
