Do you want to learn how you can use literature to explore the world and your potential role in it? Our English Literature programme will give you the opportunity to read and enjoy a wide range of literary texts, including Shakespearean drama, children’s literature and postmodern fiction. Through this course you will learn how to read and analyse poetry and short stories, as well as gain an understanding of how to compare past and contemporary texts in the same genres. You'll have the opportunity to explore literature from the Medieval period to the present day, and you'll look at contemporary topics such as gender and sexuality and world writing in English. We'll teach you the skills and techniques of professional scholarship and literary research, developing your confidence in sharing your knowledge and communicating your ideas. We'll encourage you to be creative in responding to texts, giving you the chance to communicate your own particular passion for literature. You'll also have opportunities to create your own literature, with optional creative writing workshops in each year of your degree. English at Leeds Trinity has a thriving community of writers, including staff who are published poets and novelists. You'll have the opportunity to take part in our writing events, including an annual Writers' Festival and monthly open mic nights.
