University of Sheffield

English Literature

The first year is an intensive masterclass in how to read poetry and prose. Optional modules introduce you to theatre, cinema and creative writing. The second and third years give you a rich and varied education that covers every period from the Renaissance to Modernism and contemporary literature. 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 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.
