Course summary

An innovative and flexible programme giving you the opportunity to specialise simultaneously in several areas of English Studies.

Overview

This programme gives you the opportunity to specialise simultaneously in several areas of English Studies:

  • Literature 1500 to the Present
  • Drama and Creative Writing
