Most English teachers are Lit graduates so...
say to the LO FUNEX world of tomorrow.
LOL PMSL RFLMAFAO et cetera.
Are they? Not English Language?
They're actually a mid ranking uni, which isn't too bad for an ex-Poly but they're nowhere near Durham's standing.
They're chopping the course for the publicity, I imagine. Don't understand why, no one will come to its rescue with sponsorship.
Eng Lit is a very popular generalist's degree and is a bread and cheese subject so very cheap to run. English (lang and lit combined) and English Language are harder to find, finance and to get on. Bizarre decision as its probably going to cost them at least 200 students p.a.. I've no idea of their standing in the Eng Lit tables, as I'm out of it now.
I am not trying to be funny - but what skills or knowledge does the generalist offer? Do they try to see everything through a class literature lens? How does the English literature graduates ability to solve problems compare with that of a STEM graduate?
Are logical analysis, numeracy, and understanding cause and effect part of it?
