Programme specification:

Students on this programme will benefit from contact with leading scholars in their field in both of the partner subjects. The Schools of English and LCS are both internationally-recognised research leaders in their fields, with long-established reputations for excellence in research and teaching.

The programme begins with structured foundational study across a small number of compulsory modules, but also offers a high degree of module choice at levels 2 and 3. Students are exposed to a broad range of different fields of study within the two disciplines, innovative assessment methods (e.g. online discussion forums, wikis, student surveys, posters) and a considerable element of research-based learning culminating in an independent research project at level 3.

Students on this programme may apply for transfer to a European or an International Degree. The opportunity to apply for a work placement degree is also available. Those students who are accepted may participate in one of our Erasmus/Socrates schemes or go to one of a range of universities with which the University of Leeds has established links.
