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 Literature and Music bring together two of the most important
forms of artistic expression. By studying English Literature and Music at
Keele, you will develop as a critical thinker and a creative practitioner, and
discover ways in which scholarly and creative approaches to these disciplines
inform and enrich each other. In English Literature you will explore the significance of texts within
their originating cultures, periods and genres as well as their continuing
influence. You might consider the historical, socio-political, economic,
gender and geographical contexts of fiction, poetry, drama and even
film, from the medieval period to the present day. You will have the
opportunity, if you wish, to develop your skills as a creative writer, and
you can take modules in Film Studies.

The Music strand of your degree will investigate music in a wide range
of contexts. As well as focussing on the creation and performance
of music, you’ll examine its meaning and uses in a diversity of styles,
periods and traditions, through topics including history, aesthetics,
music and narrative, and music’s social impact. You can also take a
work placement module studying music in the community. Music
at Keele is a hub of world-class musicologists, composers and
performers, and the musical life on campus is rich and varied.

An English Literature and Music degree will enable you to develop a wide
range of skills that can be used in many different careers. Some careers
may require further study or training, but you might work as a teacher,
journalist, editor, librarian, advertising copywriter, or arts administrator.
You could work in orchestras, bands, a recording company, publishing,
game design, film, radio and television. Our graduates also go into
careers in marketing, research, broadcasting, and publishing. Many
of our graduates choose to pursue further academic study.
