BA in English
Students study a range of texts, genres, and movements from across English literary history, from the Anglo-Saxon period through to works of contemporary authors; analyzing the way in which forms and traditions have evolved, as well as studying the theory and practice of writing, reading, and criticism. They analyze the ways in which writers have written profoundly about, and been influenced by, their experience, societies and times, and how their works have contributed to human culture and understanding.
The study of English literature, therefore, has an exciting inter-disciplinary element which can incorporate, for example, aspects of history, philosophy, linguistics and cultural studies. Students develop skills in independent research and critical analysis, together with the ability to form and express cogent, articulate arguments. These are highly valuable transferable skills, sought after by employers and applicable to a wide range of possible future career paths, something which is reflected by the diverse career destinations of our graduates.
