English Language and Literature

If you want to explore how the written and spoken word works in society, Aston’s innovative English language and literature degrees are for you. We emphasise practical applications, linking your studies to the real world through professionally relevant modules in areas such as Language and Literature in Education, The Language of the Law, Psychology of Language and Communication or Language at Work.

You will explore how the latest technologies impact and inform the study and practice of language, literature and teaching. Whether you choose to develop your creative writing on a literature course or learn cutting edge text analysis skills on a language course, Aston has the degree for you.

There’s no need to limit yourself to one subject. Choose one of our joint honours courses and you can pursue your passion for English alongside business, history or sociology.
