Study English with us and you will develop a highly sought-after critical vocabulary. Through analysing world-changing writing from medieval epic to the latest fiction and poetry, your English degree can take you into a wide range of careers within the media, creative industries and beyond. An English degree also encourages you to read in new ways. By studying English at QMUL, you will become a thoughtful, thorough and active reader who thinks intelligently about both what people have written (and are still writing) and about what it means to read and interpret their work. You will be introduced to a wide range of critical and theoretical approaches to literary and non-literary texts, and you’ll discover how history, philosophy, psychology and a range of other disciplines can inform our understanding of literary works.
