Edge Hill University has opted into the TEF and received a Gold award.
In English Literature you will have the opportunity to feed your passion for the written word while developing essential communication skills which are highly valued by employers. We want you to be inspired by literature, from classic to contemporary works. We will introduce you to influential theoretical and critical approaches, as well as offering a range of modules that include different literary periods, genres and topics. If you have a passion for reading and a love of language, an enthusiasm for the ideas that lie behind published literature in all its forms, and a desire to know more about motivations and the impact of literature on societies, then this is the ideal degree.
Please visit our website for information on available modules.
Assessment involves a mixture of coursework and examinations with emphasis placed on work produced in your own time or formally presented in class. Typically, you can expect to be assessed on essays, short analyses, reports and close readings, oral presentations, blogs and group work. In your final year you may choose to write a dissertation on a specialised literary theme, which you will research independently, with one-to-one support from an expert supervisor.
