What makes this course such a rewarding experience is our focus. Throughout the course, compulsory modules emphasise the ways in which these two subjects complement each other. The literature side of the course aims to give you as wide an appreciation as possible. There are also opportunties to study film. You will have regular meetings with your personal tutor. And we keep seminar groups small, so everyone gets the chance to participate. The School of English at Sheffield plays a major role in the city’s cultural life. Our students get involved with theatre projects and organise literary festivals. They also work with communities, helping people from marginalised groups find a voice through engagement with the arts and humanities. Our staff are leading researchers, critics, writers and practitioners. Our graduates tend to be good thinkers, good readers and good writers. They’re creative, self-motivating. They have an eye for detail and an ear for nuance. Their particular blend of transferable skills means they’re right at home in TV, radio, marketing, publishing and PR. Many become teachers. Others go into journalism or law via postgraduate study.
