Course summary

As technology continues to make the written word available in increasingly diverse formats to ever-wider audiences, those who are skilled at reaching informed judgements about literature, from novels to haikus, are well-placed to participate in the global economy.This course offers you the opportunity to study English literature in considerable depth and breadth, including a wide range of texts and genres ranging from Shakespearean drama to Irish literature and contemporary poetry. In your modules you will learn to analyse and criticise prose, poetry and plays, and work independently to research your areas of interest. In addition to the range of literature-based options, you will also have the opportunity to choose others that complement your study but range further afield in the areas of languages, film adaptation and creative writing.English literature graduates make excellent communicators, adept at understanding and analysing literature, with strong skills in critical and independent thinking, and a sophisticated knowledge of how texts interact with their historical and social contexts. Graduates of this course have gone on to work for a variety of organisations and companies, including ITV Yorkshire, the NHS, the Department for Environment, Lloyds TSB, the AA, WH Smith, the Museum of Science and Industry and Nationwide.
