Course summary

If you love books and enjoy exploring new ideas, then English Literature is for you. During this course, you’ll not only get to read (and discuss) some of the greatest works ever written but also learn how to research, analyse, debate and create. There are lots of English Literature courses out there, so why choose us? * We offer a wide range of module options to choose from, diverse and unique forms of coursework assessment (but no exams), and excellent employment prospects. * Our team of academic staff are ranked in the top 5 in the UK for the quality of their research publications (REF 2014). * We get you out of the classroom on a range of exciting field trips including Bronte Parsonage, the British Library and Shakespeare's Globe in London. * You'll learn to navigate digital resources and to present your ideas using the latest media. * Every year students also have the chance to get involved in events at the Huddersfield Literature Festival - https://www.huddlitfest.org.uk/ We never lose sight of the pleasure that comes from reading, discussing and writing. We also want you to finish your course with the kind of practical, transferable skills needed in the real world – things like critical thinking, researching, independent study, communicating and arguing persuasively. Students taking the English Literature course at the University of Huddersfield get the opportunity to be enriched by a wide variety of literature. We offer modules ranging from the Medieval period to the present day, focusing on interesting topics that broaden your horizons. Global Shakespeare, American literature, South-Asian literature, the Emotions of War, Romantic and Victorian literature, as well as the work of contemporary women writers and contemporary science fiction are among the options that our students can choose to study. Our tutors are world leading and internationally recognised researchers, whose feedback on student work has been rated outstanding by our external examiners. Our students graduate with a wide set of skills that make them highly valued in career options that range from primary and secondary teaching, postgraduate study and academic careers, publishing, law, financial services, events management and marketing. ~ Todd Borlik, Senior Lecturer in Renaissance Drama.
