Programme structure

In Year 1, students develop skills in the analysis of literature and explore the most significant approaches to the study of the discipline. Students select two modules that deal with American material and also place written texts in relation to wider aspects of American society and culture. There are options to study modules in Creative Writing or modules that focus on the historical development and current usage of the English language.

Year 2 builds on key issues and debates within the study of literature by offering broad-based modules encompassing the literary traditions of Britain and the USA. Students choose two modules from a range dedicated to American materials. The modules examining English materials focus on major periods and genres from the medieval period up to the present and students have a free choice in the selection of these.

In Year 3, modules follow a particular theme – some modules include texts from both Britain and the USA while others are more focused on one or the other. Two modules dedicated to American material must be studied and topics include African-American Literatures and American Crime Fiction. Modules here tend to be closely related to the research interests of teaching staff and engage with cutting-edge developments in the discipline.

International exchanges (optional)
The University runs a developing range of exchanges and visits including ones with universities in Poland, Germany, Japan and the USA.
