The BA English Language and Literature is a fully integrated Single Honors programme taught by a team of world-class researchers who are passionate about teaching.
It offers a varied and challenging programme to students who wish to study both language and literature. It enables students to develop skills in both subjects, as well as investigating the interface between the two. Our English Literature modules allow you to balance the study of traditional writers like Shakespeare, Milton, Wordworth, Dickens and woolf with an exploration of genres such as modern science fiction, children’s literature and contemporary women’s writing.
You will be encouraged to think critically about these texts and communicate your ideas clearly to others, while being aware of the importance of your own personal response to them.
Your choice of study will grow from an introduction of English literary history in year 1, to modules on related subjects like Film, drama, Philosophy or writing (creative or Journalistic) in years 2 and 3 all supported by our highly experienced teaching staff.Course details Available as: Full Time
