Course summary

**This is the 4 year course which includes a Professional Placement Year.**Explore. Question. Challenge. Change the way you see the world with our English Literature degree.- Explore the diverse and surprising ways that literature has shaped how we see the world.- Join a supportive community with a shared passion and curiosity for all things literary.- Develop a wealth of skills and experience that employers need and value – in research, analysis and communication. Literature is diverse. Every text we pick up gives us a different perspective on the world. Bath Spa's English Literature degree introduces you to an incredible range of literary worlds – from Shakespeare’s tragedies to contemporary political drama, Romantic poetry to dystopian eco-fictions, and from the Brontës to the Queer Gothic. In amongst the familiar, you’ll find new and exciting writers whose work will challenge your expectations of what ‘literature’ can be, and you’ll also find original ways of reading and thinking about the classics.You’ll belong to a close, supportive community of learners and researchers, driven by your own passion for reading and guided by your tutors’ innovative teaching and research expertise. We'll work with you as individuals – both in small groups and in one-to-one assessment tutorials – to enable you to dig deeper into the histories, theories and ideas of literature.This close partnership will help you develop the vital skills of analysis, communication and collaboration that employers look for in English Literature graduates – skills that will open up a diverse range of possible careers. Publishing, PR, teaching and journalism are popular paths, and our graduates have gone on to work with leading employers including NewScientist, Oxford University Press, Marie Curie, Bristol Museums and Barclays. You can also choose to further your learning through postgraduate study.**More about the Professional Placement Year**A Professional Placement Year (PPY), traditionally known as a sandwich year, is where a student undertakes a period of work with an external organisation for between 9-13 months. The placement occurs between the students' second and third years of undergraduate study. Students can engage in up to 3 placements to make up the total time and are required to source the placement(s) themselves with support from the Careers & Employability Team.
