This course is subject to revalidation in 2018/19 and therefore may be subject to change.

This programme enables you to develop analytical skills by exploring a diverse range of texts, including novels, poems, plays, films, images and graphic novels. You will look at how meaning is created through language and form and at relationships between texts and contemporary cultural issues.

All of City College Norwich’s Degree programmes are validated by the UEA, meaning that the quality of the awards you get is assured by a world renowned Higher Education organisation.

You will be expected to come into college for two days per week. Teaching will involve lectures, guest speakers, small group sessions or seminars, tutorials, workshops, visits to historical sites, theatre and cinema trips.

You will be expected to take responsibility for your own learning. This might involve writing up lecture notes, preparing assignments, researching future seminar topics or general reading around the subject.
