Program Description

Discover the power to transform yourself and society by studying pure literature or a flexible combination of language, literature and practical communication.

Explore the greatest works ever written in English, from traditional classics to transgressive contemporary works that shake the foundations of our society. The course has options to study literature from the 18th to the 21st century – including myths and legends, crime fiction, travel writing, drama, poetry, postcolonial literature, American and Irish writing.

Explore the workings and history of the English language, and how it shapes identities and the world around us. There are options to study language acquisition, language history, structure, dialects, sociolinguistics and ecolinguistics, and apply them to gain insights into gender, race, media and society.

Practical communication
Learn the language of leadership by gaining confidence and skills in inspirational speaking, persuasive writing, active listening, constructive criticism, visual design and ethical argumentation. These skills will provide a foundation for life and employment, giving you the power to shape society.
