English, American and Post-Colonial Lit with an Approved Year Abroad (4 years)

In this degree programme (alongside a selection of literature modules) you take modules that address the phenomenon of empire and its contemporary consequences: for example, nationhood, diaspora and migration. The material studied includes literary texts and theoretical texts as well as life-writing. You are encouraged to consider how these texts reflect on the colonial experience and the construction of a narrative of its aftermath. You spend the year between second and final year studying abroad, making the degree a four-year programme. Spending a year abroad allows you to develop a different perspective on your studies and to immerse yourself in a new culture. Previous destinations include North America, Europe and Asia.
