Program Description

Our BA (Hons) English Literature will help you understand the importance of English literature; how it is affected by the culture, language, technology and economics of the period, but also how it influences readers and society itself.

You’ll engage with a wide range of texts, including novels, poems, plays, theatrical performances, films, tracts, pamphlets, reviews and critical and cultural theory. By studying English literature, you'll also be exploring a range of other subjects, including history, politics, philosophy, religion, psychology and the history of art.

• Tuition fees for students who have citizens' rights after Brexit: £9,250/year
