Course summary

From the language of poetry to that of social media, the study of literature and language opens up the world of human expression and communication. On this course, you will not only build a detailed knowledge and understanding of literature and language but you will also gain insights into social and cultural issues that affect our lives. You will have the opportunity to explore the relationship between literature, language, and society.You will learn to research and analyse texts from literary and linguistic perspectives and will have the chance to study a wide range of topics, including romanticism, modernism, children’s literature, 21st century literature, medieval prose and poetry, Shakespeare, modern Irish literature, the history of the English language, varieties of English, corpus analysis, attitudes to language, and many other subjects.English literature is valued by employers who recognise that such graduates possess the skills and knowledge which equips them for a range of career paths requiring good communication, clear presentation of arguments and ideas, and the ability to understand and evaluate complex information. After graduation, students can go into teaching, publishing, journalism, advertising, PR, or events management, as well as into a wide range of other graduate-level jobs. The course also provides an ideal platform for postgraduate study.This course is just one of our English and Creative Writing programmes, which have risen ten places in the 2020 Guardian university league tables. The foundation year of this four-year programme aims to provide you with a range of necessary study skills for undertaking successful undergraduate learning, and it will introduce you to a range of academic study which will prepare you to progress positively onto the BA (Hons) course.
