Program description

At Keele University, we’re different. Nestled in 600 acres of countryside in the heart of the UK, we have a big campus but a small and cosmopolitan community. We proudly rank 1st for student satisfaction in the National Student Survey for the last three years. This is because it’s more than green and lovely, it’s a place of research and academic excellence too.

English and History at Keele achieved 94% student satisfaction in the 2015
National Student Survey. Our research in History is among the best in the UK,
rated highly for research impact in the 2014 Research Excellence Framework. Great novels, poems, plays or short stories do not come out of nowhere.
They are shaped by and reflect the historical and social circumstances of
the times in which they were written and in many cases they make vital
contributions to our understanding of those times.

Keele has a strong
tradition of studying literary texts within their historical contexts and this
programme provides the perfect combination if you want to deepen your
understanding of the times in which works of literature were produced.
History at Keele has internationally recognised expertise in world
history from 400AD to the present day and English has strengths in
medieval literature, early modern literature, eighteenth and nineteenth
century British and American literature, modernism, and post-war and
contemporary literature.

Our graduates have gone on to work in teaching, journalism, media,
the civil service, the heritage and museum sector, local government
and management. Around a quarter of our graduates go on to take higher
degrees and the degree opens the doors to many other higher education
opportunities with many choosing to stay at Keele.
