Course summary

The BA (Hons) English Literature at Coventry University is a course for students who not only want to further explore the major literary periods that they will have studied in their pre-degree-level studies, but who also want to be introduced to new and diverse areas of the subject.These typically include such areas as, in no particular order of importance, regional studies and spatiality (including the literature of the English Midlands), fantasy and speculative fictions, African-American literature, Anglophone world literatures and literatures of the American West.There is a focus on student application of new and cutting-edge theories / approaches to text - including, though not limited to, posthumanism, critical disability studies and critical race theory - in order to generate new insights of their own rather than just learning about literary history and the interpretations of others.Key course benefits:* A chance to develop a dynamic online presence through creating an individual A Domain of One’s Own (DoOO) website, which allows graduates to present prospective employers with an online portfolio of their degree-level work.* A chance to enhance critical thinking and judgment, developing the communication skills employers are looking for.* The opportunity to join a range of societies such as the Literature Society or Book Club Society which aim to develop student interest in literature, film, and theatre, as well as promoting social events.* The opportunity to apply for a work placement, which has led previous students to experiences as an English subject mentor at Cardinal Newman School, a marketing and events social media and newsletter editor at the Coventry Irish Society, an editorial intern at Grazia Magazine, a freelance journalist at Coventry News and Sport or a human resources intern at First Utility.
