Programme structure

Year 1, a balanced study of English Literature and English Language is pursued. English Literature modules focus on the development of critical reading skills – this includes an introduction to the various forms of literary theory that are the basis for the various forms of analysis of literary texts. English Language modules establish a fundamental knowledge of key areas such as syntax, morphology, semantics, phonetics and phonology.

In Year 2, the majority of study is in English Literature. Most modules are based around a historical period and students have a free choice of modules whose content ranges from Anglo-Saxon writing to contemporary postmodern literature. There is a wide range of English Language modules for students to choose from – for instance, it would be possible to focus on the historical development of English or on sociolinguistic approaches to the study of language.

Year 3 offers modules where the study is more specialised. In English Literature, the focus may be on detailed study of the literature of a particular place or time, literature dealing with a particular topic or the advanced analysis of literature from a particular critical perspective. English Language modules offer the opportunity to develop the depth of analysis and the sophistication of research techniques brought to bear on the topic.
