Subjects

English literature

Heritage studies

Most of our humanities subjects can be studied as joint honours as well as single honours. Joint honours programmes give you the opportunity to combine two subjects, which complement your interests or career goals. You will usually concentrate on both subjects equally. It can be possible to transfer between single and joint honours options, usually during your first or second year, and advice will be available from your personal academic tutor.

This course is aimed at anyone who wishes to study in a rapidly growing interdisciplinary field. You can set your own research agendas, choosing your topics for study at all levels and bringing together the multi-disciplinary teaching and learning you will experience throughout your studies.

You will have the unique opportunity to immerse yourself in the wealth of the fascinating and varied culture and heritage of the Highlands and Islands of Scotland and, using a wide range of authors and texts, from classic to contemporary, explore literature in a global context, looking in-depth at language and literary history.
