Course summary

Our English degree gives you the opportunity to develop the critical and verbal skills needed for a confident, effective reading of literary and non-literary texts. It develops your core skills in analytical and imaginative reading and writing.**Why study BA English at Goldsmiths?**- We’re not just focused on the classics. You’ll leave us with a solid understanding of key literary texts, but you’ll also have the chance to look at less traditional subjects including surrealism, Hollywood cinema, fairy tales, and writing by migrants and refugees.- We’re inclusive. We embrace literature from a variety of cultures, giving you the chance to study writing from America, Europe and the Caribbean.- Our option modules offer a historical view of writing, and also let you specialise in areas of interest, including thematic and genre-based approaches to literature, comparative analysis, and literary theory.- From historic theatres to obscure bookshops, London is a constant source of literary inspiration – and it’s right on your doorstep.- There are countless ways to get involved in English outside of your studies, whether you want to join the English and Creative Writing societies or hone your writing skills on [smiths] magazine and The Leopard newspaper.
