Our English Literature programme gives you the opportunity to study a wide range of literary forms, genres and themes from the early medieval period to the present day.
You will gain insights into the ways in which literatures in English have developed through history, while also having the opportunity for in-depth study of genres such as children’s literature, noir and gothic fiction.
