BA (Hons) English and History Studies

BA (Hons) English and History Studies offers you the chance to study locally for a nationally recognised and highly respected degree by enrolling as a student of the University of Lincoln, but living and studying at home.

The emphasis of the English component of this course lies in fostering the student’s ability to analyse modern literary texts in a contemporary context and to justify an individual reading. No previous formal study of drama, the novel or poetry is required, as the skills needed will be developed during the first year of the course. History may be about the past but this degree takes a modern approach, concentrating on developing the ability to deal with primary sources and to undertake analysis of areas of personal interest.

A mature approach with reasonably sized seminar groups encourages the students to put forward their own ideas and thus increase self-confidence and communication skills.

British and European History to the present day will be considered and the approach is thematic, dealing with questions such as what causes revolution or how life has changed with nineteenth century industrialisation. Again, students are encouraged to put forward their own ideas to the rest of their group.

Applications from students without the traditional A level or equivalent qualifications are particularly welcomed.

The subject content of this degree makes it ideal for those wishing to train for a career in school teaching. There are, however, many other graduate careers such as the Civil Service, Local Government, Librarianship, Retail Management, Public Relations, Community Development, Advertising and Banking.

These areas of work are all available upon achieving this traditionally respected degree which develops the student’s ability to communicate, organise, analyse and work well with others. Some students undertake Higher Degrees.
