Course summary

Studying BA (Hons) English at the University of Wolverhampton gives you the opportunity to explore a broad range of literary and non-literary texts from the Renaissance to the present day and from the West Indies to the West Midlands.You will study great canonical writers and uncover the literary forms we associate with them (like Shakespearean drama, Milton’s epic, the ‘major’ Romantic poets and great Victorian novelists). You will learn of the challenges to this tradition offered by the Modernists, 1960s radicals and others marginalised by class, gender, sexuality and race.The Foundation year prepares students for university level study. Successful completion of our Foundation course permits access to any of our Humanities or Media BA (Hons) degree courses, which include English, English Language, Creative Writing, Linguistics, Media, Philosophy and Religious Studies — many of which can be taken singly as specialist degrees or together as ‘joint’ degree routes. The Foundation year begins with modules aimed at providing transferable study skills and then, in the second semester, gives students the opportunity to study more specialist modules, with a focus on various aspects of Humanities and Media.The course will equip you with the theoretical, philosophical and contextual tools to critically examine the process of literary production and reception, enabling you to make informed judgments about literary value and cultural capital.We deliver the course through a variety of learning activities which will aid both subject-specific knowledge and also transferable skills. Typical methods include lectures, seminars, tutorials, interactive workshops, independent research, individual and group presentations, formal examination and online forums, portfolios and blogs.BA (Hons) English concentrates largely on literature / literary study. But for those students with an interest in the study of English Language, the course also offers you the flexibility to study selected modules focusing on the evolution of words, dialects and other structures within the English language, exploring why these changes take place and how they influence our social and cultural development.
