Subject

English literature

This Integrated Master’s Degree is designed to give students the opportunity to study a combination of both Law and English throughout their four-year programme of study. Thus giving students a wider range of subject choice than a single subject degree. It is suitable both for those who have studied Law before and those who have not, and for those seriously considering employment in the legal profession to those who just have an interest in these complementary subjects.

Law affects every aspect of day to day life. Whether it is purchasing a ticket to a festival, the rules regarding university tuition fees or the functioning of our democracy and relationships with other nations, Law is there to regulate pretty much everything that we do. This is what makes it such a fascinating subject to study. During your four-year programme you will study many aspects of the Law. This will include the foundation legal subjects for a Qualifying Law Degree:
- Criminal Law,

- Contract Law,

- Tort Law,

- EU Law,

- Public Law,

- Land Law and

- Equity and Trusts.

In addition, you will have the opportunity to study Business Law, Human Rights Law or Intellectual Property Law.

You will also have the opportunity to study from a range of English modules including:
- Language and Authority,

- Poetry,

- Reading Women’s Writings,

- From Tragedy to Mystery: The Origins of Drama,

- Creative Writing,

- Fiction for Children,

- English in the Workplace,

- Language into Literature,

- The Restoration to the Romantics,

- European Literacy Legacies and

- Fairy Tales: Early Modern to Postmodern.

Throughout your course you will be assessed through a variety of methods including essays, exams, presentations and a mock trial and you will write a dissertation on a topic of your choice.

This Integrated Master’s Degree enables you to develop important academic and transferable skills: analytical and critical thinking, problem-solving, research, oral argument and dialogue, negotiation and employability skills. All these skills open a wide array of employment prospects, and in addition you will have the opportunity to undertake a work placement in your final year of your study.

Law at Chichester begins preparing you for employment opportunities right from the outset, with the development of practical legal skills being a key component. Your programme of study will include several guest speakers, who work within the legal profession, to give you an insight in to how the Law you are learning operates in practice.

Throughout, your study of Law will also help prepare you for the Solicitor’s Qualifying Examination, should you be considering a career as a Solicitor. This will include the development of practical skills and knowledge required, such as how to interpret a will and the process of selling and buying a property. Furthermore, not only is the study of English incredibly useful for those planning to become either a Solicitor or Barrister but could equally lead to employment where the study of English is beneficial, for example, Journalism, Web Content Management, Advertising Copywriting, Public Relations or Social Media Management.

(Note: Students can exit after three years with a BA (Hons) qualification. In order for students to cover the foundation legal subjects for a Qualifying Law Degree, and the content to support their preparation for the Solicitors' Qualifying Exam, they must complete the full four-year MArts qualification)
