University of Brighton has opted into the TEF and received a Silver award.
This is a challenging and stimulating course that explores the power of the spoken and written word across cultures and throughout history.
You will investigate historical and cultural variation in language and the importance of context in shaping discourse.
Developing the theoretical tools that will enable you to analyse and interpret a wide range of texts, you will explore English as a literary language and track its development as a global language of communication.
Studying influential texts, and considering relevant debates and theories, you will develop key analytical skills and a deep theoretical knowledge of genres and styles.
The wide range of option modules means you can tailor the course to your interests. You will develop skills for self-managed learning and are encouraged to take up volunteer placements and engage in the vibrant local literary events scene.
There is the opportunity to spend your third year abroad as part of the Erasmus programme.
