An English degree is more than choosing between language and literature. It can help you think about and analyse the world differently. The second most commonly spoken language in the world after Mandarin Chinese, English is fundamental to almost everything we do in our professional and personal lives; on this course, you’ll examine, explore and experience the world through language. Flexibility is key; you can specialise in English Language, English Literature or a combination of both. Depending on your interests, you can also choose from a huge range of optional modules, such as Fantasy and Speculative Fiction, Sociolinguistics, Creating Stories for Children, or Journalism, Ethics and Society.
