Overview

Our English Literature programme gives you the opportunity to study a wide range of literary forms, genres and themes from the early medieval period to the present day. You will gain insights into the ways in which literatures in English have developed through history, while also having the opportunity for in-depth study of genres such as Children’s Literature, Noir and Gothic Fiction.

Year One will introduce you to historical developments of literatures in English and build key skills for advanced study. From Year Two, you will be able to choose from a range of modules focusing on specific periods (eg Medieval, Victorian, Modernist), genres or themes. An optional dissertation in Year Three allows you to develop a project on a topic of your choice.

Subject is available through Honours. More information here
