English and Comparative Literature

Enabling you to study literature and culture across linguistic and national boundaries, this degree offers you the opportunity to read a generous range of works within a comparative context. You'll develop an understanding of the depth and breadth of literature, and will be able to practise the skills needed for a confident and effective reading of literary and non-literary texts. The degree is flexible, allowing you to specialise in the areas that interest you, whether they lie in American, British, European, Caribbean or other postcolonial literatures, historical periods, or literary themes and genres. Our staff come from a variety of cultural backgrounds, so they're ideally placed to offer their insights as you develop these interests. The Department is large enough to provide a wide range of modules, but small enough to let you get to know other students and staff. We host a programme of guest lectures that has included major names in literature, including Alan Bennett, Germaine Greer, and Nobel Laureates Seamus Heaney, Doris Lessing, Harold Pinter and Derek Walcott. Our graduates have a good employment record, and have gone on to work in publishing, journalism, PR, teaching, advertising, and the media.
