Course summary

English at Kent is challenging, flexible, and wide-ranging. It covers both traditional areas (such as Shakespeare and Dickens) and newer fields such as American literature, creative writing, postcolonial literature and recent developments in literary theory. We also offer you the opportunity to spend up to a year studying abroad in either America, Canada, Europe or Hong Kong. Staff in the School of English are internationally recognised for academic research which links closely with undergraduate teaching, and the School regularly hosts visits by a variety of international writers and critics. There are several published authors and poets in the School, and our students publish a magazine of creative writing, poetry and prose. A number of our students also write for InQuire, the student union newspaper. Film at Kent engages with cinema’s rich scope and history, from silent classics and mainstream Hollywood to world cinema and the avant-garde.
