Course Summary

English Literature BA is a diverse and stimulating degree in which you will encounter a range of different kinds of writing, from the Early Modern period to the present day. We emphasise an ethical approach to the subject, relating the study of literature to significant contemporary themes such as environmentalism, social justice, gender equality and disability inclusion. It develop expertise suited to a range of careers, from teaching to marketing. You will also be well prepared for postgraduate study. Through our work project module and numerous internship opportunities, you can enhance your employability whilst you study. You are taught through a combination of lectures, seminars, small and large group discussions, online forums and workshops. In addition, meetings with personal academic tutors are scheduled on at least 4 occasions in the first year and three occasions in each of the other years of a course. You have an opportunity to undertake a semester long placement in the third year of the course, supervised for agreed projects by a University tutor. You will be taught by a teaching team whose expertise and knowledge are closely matched to the content of the modules on the course. The team includes senior academics and professional practitioners.

After our English Literature degree, many of our graduates take a fourth year postgraduate Certificate in Education before entering the teaching profession. Other students will take a certificate in TEFL and become teachers of English as a second language at home or abroad. Throughout the course, there is a focus on developing employability for careers in English Literature. This includes work experience opportunities, a credited work project module, and a career and professional development module. Students also have the opportunity to study abroad for a semester. Many students progress to careers requiring good communication skills such as Public Relations, or develop research careers with media or publishing companies. Those graduates who achieve particularly good results in their first degree may choose to progress to a Masters course. This then often leads to a career as a researcher or further study to PhD.
