If you love books and enjoy exploring new ideas, then English Literature is for you. During this course, you’ll get to read (and discuss) some of the greatest works ever written, but more than that, you’ll learn how to research, analyse, debate and create. You’ll sharpen your thinking and fine-tune your communication skills, ready for a whole range of exciting careers. There are lots of English Literature courses out there, so why choose us? We think it comes down to one word: enjoyment. If you enjoy your studies, you’ll get more out of them. So, while some of the texts may be different from what you’re used to reading, we never lose sight of the pleasure that comes from reading, discussing and writing. Enjoyment is only part of the story. We also want you to finish your course with the kind of practical, transferable skills needed in the real world – things like critical thinking, researching, independent study, communicating and arguing persuasively. And, while some of our texts may be ancient, the way we work is anything but old-fashioned. You’ll explore how to present your ideas using the latest media, as well as more traditional approaches. You’ll also have lots of opportunities to team up with students and lecturers, whether in seminars or on group projects.
