About History and English at University of Greenwich

This programme will allow you to combine the study of history and English. You will study at a World Heritage Site, itself a living legacy of British scientific, maritime and imperial history, as well as a thriving multicultural centre of contemporary Britain. The history pathway explores a wide range of historical topics, from global events to community history, and from witchcraft to the World Wars. 

You will also have the opportunity to develop your research skills and to develop practical and professional skills through a work placement.

The English element of the programme emphasises literature of the last two centuries, including fiction and poetry, visual art, film and theatre. The programme looks at the historical, social and cultural contexts in which texts are produced and received.

Both disciplines take full advantage of our culturally and historically rich location and proximity to central London. Visits to theatres, art galleries and museums are integral to many of our modules.


The aims of the programme are:

  • To provide students with a substantial grounding in modern British, European and world history
  • To provide a grounding in English literature from the Renaissance to the present day
  • To nurture the development of open, creative and critical thinkers who are able to apply these qualities of mind in a variety of intellectual contexts
  • To provide a structure and an environment in which skills relevant to citizenship, employability and lifelong learning may be developed.
