Overview

The academic disciplines of Sociology and Literature share a common goal ­to further our understanding of society.

One may do this through measurement while the other favours depiction, but this shared analytical aim makes this Major/Minor combination a particularly well-balanced choice for anyone who wishes to master a wide range of methods, theories and critical skills while gaining greater insight into both subjects.

As an English Literature Major you will spend much of your time acquiring formidable knowledge of literary texts and discourses, learning the critical skills to analyse these works and developing the cultural vocabulary to communicate your ideas about them.

By investigating the deeper social, cultural, historical and geographical contexts of different literary genres (from early English to the contemporary) you’ll gain the precious ability to understand the roots of contemporary issues and address them from a position of unusual knowledge and eloquence.

The lively and creative atmosphere in the School of English and Languages will harness your enthusiasm for literature, and our renowned passion for imparting professional skills will prepare you for a range of careers.
