Course summary

Overview

If you have a passion for reading books, and thinking about the ideas and debates they reflect and inspire, then you’ll enjoy studying English Literature with us.

You’ll explore the way that literature helps us to imagine what it is like to walk in other people’s shoes, and how it can take us on journeys of self-discovery.

You’ll engage in topical discussions about how books empower people to tell their own stories, and how they help us redefine notions of gender, sexuality, ethnicity, class and other markers of identity. Booklovers will feel right at home here.

Learn how to identify a target audience, prepare effective messages and select the right media channels as you develop your talent for communications.

Explore the world of social media and learn how to use your creative and digital skills to influence audiences on behalf of your clients.

Why Study English Literature?

If you like to read, are curious about the questions that reading raises, and value the opportunity to share your discoveries with others, you'll find that our course can bring benefits and rewards extending far beyond graduation.

You'll have the opportunity to study modules that span right across literature in English, from the Middle Ages to the present day, and you'll find yourself responding to a range of absorbing and thought-provoking literary texts.

If you are planning a professional career in the fields of public relations, media or marketing then look no further. On this professionally-accredited course you'll get to grips with all three areas, studying theories and practices that will develop your practical, creative and technical skills, so you become a work-ready graduate.

Your future career

The analytical and communication abilities that an English Literature degree provides are called ‘transferable skills’ and are desirable in almost any occupation. When you are looking for a job, they are often the most valuable skills to have. Because of this flexibility, an English Literature degree lets you choose from many different employment sectors and occupations. Teaching and social work are common career destinations. A large number of graduates choose to work in a creative field, like journalism, advertising, public relations, or marketing. There are also lots of opportunities for further academic study, and many of our students go on to pursue postgraduate work in English Literature and other related fields.

There are a wide range of jobs in PR, social media, marketing, digital marketing, press and publicity, event management, corporate communication, research and customer insight, media planning and customer service in addition to wider graduate roles in retail, education, the civil service, public and voluntary sectors. Increasingly graduates opt to apply their entrepreneurial skills and develop their own businesses.
