Study writing from Shakespeare to science fiction, and Wordsworth to women’s literature. Sharpen your performance skills in our dedicated drama studios and full-size theatre. As well as developing your academic knowledge, this course will prepare you for a range of careers. Our Drama and English Literature course is ideal if you’re fascinated by both subjects and want to pursue a career in fields such as teaching, journalism, television and radio, and more. Our Drama modules focus on 20th-century and contemporary performance practice. You’ll work on public productions as well as smaller scale projects – sometimes alongside students from other courses, developing collaborative approaches to your creative work. Meanwhile, our English Literature modules will allow you to balance your study of traditional writers such as Shakespeare, Milton, Wordsworth, Dickens and Woolf with an exploration of genres such as modern science fiction, children's literature and contemporary women's writing. Your choice will grow from an introduction to English literary history in Year 1, to modules on related subjects such as film, philosophy or writing (creative or journalistic) in years 2 and 3, all supported by our highly-experienced teaching staff.
