Overview

Students are encouraged to critically evaluate historical sources, assessing their value to our understanding of the past, and introduced to a breadth of study that includes modern and traditional literature, cultural study and critical analysis, Shakespeare and rap poetry.

In Year 1, students undertake an introduction to a variety of historical periods, cultures, methods and the nature of history. English Literature modules provide an awareness of different approaches to understanding texts which develop the skills of critical analysis, research and writing using an assortment of texts from various periods in history across the genres of prose fiction, poetry and drama.

In Year 2, students may choose to focus their studies on a range of historical themes or societies. Modules in English Literature involve study of a group of texts representative of a period of history, a particular genre or a particular area of the world. The programme has a comprehensive range of modules ranging from Anglo-Saxon to the contemporary. All the major literary figures and movements from Chaucer to the present day are available, including Shakespeare, Romantic poets, Victorian novelists and modern writers.

During Year 3, students may focus their studies on topics, periods or themes on the history of the Americas, Britain, Europe or East Asia from the classical to the modern period. English Literature modules focus on a specific collection of writings, a particular theme or critical theory in detail. Students also carry out an independent piece of research on a subject of their choice in either English Literature or History.
