Course summary

**About This Course**Literature at UEA is vivid, contentious and alive: mixed up with passion, politics and play. You’ll gain a first-class grounding in literature from the Middle Ages to the present, while learning to respond to your own reading in inventive ways.Whether handling 15th-century manuscripts in the Norwich archives or writing your own critical introduction to a novel published only last year, your apprenticeship as a literary critic blends the acquisition of high-level analytical skills and broad and deep knowledge with an attention to critical writing as a craft.Norwich is the ideal place to learn the craft of the literary critic. World-renowned literature has been produced here from the 14th century, when Julian of Norwich became the first woman to write a book in English, right up to 21st-century fiction by UEA graduates like Ian McEwan and Emma Healey.**Overview**UEA is the place where literature lives. At UEA, you’ll be part of a unique and supportive community of critics, writers, and drama practitioners who are dedicated to bringing literature to life. You’ll be studying literature in a city with both a rich literary tradition and a vibrant contemporary writing scene.We emphasize choice and flexibility in building your own unique pathway through English literature. You’ll have the chance to discover a wealth of writers from Chaucer to the present day – from medieval romance via Shakespeare, Milton, Austen, the Brontës, and James Joyce, to novelists and poets who are still writing now. You might explore diverse traditions of writing from across the globe, and you’ll tackle a heady mix of genres, which currently range from epic to children’s literature, crime writing to Latin American fiction, tragedy to biography. Your journey through literature is shaped by you and your interests – no two UEA English Literature degrees are the same.All our BA English Literature modules are 100% coursework. This enables you to cultivate the craft of critical writing. You might find yourself honing the perfect essay or try expressing your ideas in new, experimental forms in one of our creative-critical modules. Or you might turn your skill with words towards modules on journalism or publishing, which give you a flavour of the forms of writing these careers require.Whatever you study, you’ll work with our world-leading critics, who will help you to develop your own critical voice. UEA’s School of Literature, Drama and Creative Writing is famous for innovation in teaching and for cutting-edge research – that’s why in the most recent Research Excellence Framework (REF2014), UEA was ranked joint tenth in the UK for the quality of its research in English Language and Literature (Times Higher REF 2014 Analysis). Your lecturers will be passionate about bringing their own expertise into the seminar room.At UEA, your Literature degree is a rigorous, flexible and distinctive course, which enables you to become a first-rate reader of literature, and a confident writer about it. You’ll graduate as a passionate and informed advocate for the literature you love.**Disclaimer**Course details are subject to change.
