This degree introduces you to a rich and diverse range of texts from the Renaissance to the present day. You study prose, poetry, drama and film-texts within their historical, cultural and theoretical contexts, develop an awareness of critical debate within the discipline and acquire sophisticated skills in interpretation, criticism and analysis. In every module you find an inspiring range of possibilities to develop your own skills of analysis and critical interpretation. As part of your course, you can choose to study abroad. We also support your development by encouraging you to pursue independent study projects. You could, for example, edit a Renaissance play, work with texts from our unique Readerships and Literary Cultures collection or produce a dissertation on authors or texts of special interest to you.
