Course summary

Course overview

Hull has a remarkable literary legacy that has seen it called the country's "most poetic city". Poets Andrew Marvell and Philip Larkin lived here, while the University counts the likes of Douglas Dunn and Roger McGough among our alumni.

Literature affects how we think about and communicate with the world around us. It informs our understanding of ourselves and other cultures, past and present.

Explore literature from the medieval era to the 21st century. Our modules cover (among many other things) English and American poetry, children's literature, dystopian fiction, the literature of modernism and experimentation, drama from ancient Greek to contemporary Britsh, Gothic, crime and transgression.

Throughout your degree, you’re expected to study for 1,200 hours per year. That’s based on 200 hours per 20 credit module. And it includes scheduled hours, time spent on placement and independent study. How this time’s divided among each of these varies each year and depends on the course and modules you study.

Your future prospects

This programme trains you to analyse, research and communicate at a very high level - giving you skills that are prized in many professions. With this kind of grounding, you will have acquired the adaptability to flourish in many arenas.

These may include more obvious paths, such as teaching or library and archive work. They will also prove useful in any field requiring research skills and the ability to translate concepts into written or spoken forms, such as those needed by managers in any industry.
