About BA English and Russian

The joint honours BA English and Russian allows you to study two complementary disciplines, both of which ask you to think carefully about culture and historical context and to pay close attention to detail while comprehending and analysing language.

Students on this course will join two departments with expert researchers in a great diversity of fields. You will be encouraged to develop expertise and research skills relevant to both disciplines while also considering the relationship between them.

You will explore a rich variety of texts in their social, political and historical contexts and will develop excellent critical and communication skills, both in English and in Russian. You will also have opportunities to study aspects of history, film and linguistics as part of your Russian programme.

You will spend a mandatory year abroad in a Russian-speaking environment to improve your language skills and global citizenship. You will develop excellent critical and communication skills that will prepare you for a wide range of professions.

All English and Russian students complete a dissertation during the final year, a project that will ask you to bring together the skills you have developed while studying both disciplines.
