Modules

This degree combines the academic study of the large historical picture of English studies (from Beowulf to Tom Wolfe) underpinned by critical and cultural theory, with the practice of writing and publishing. You will have the opportunity to study a range of literary modules, including, for example, options in Medieval and Anglo Saxon literature (taking advantage of the exceptional library holdings at Lampeter) and to combine this academic study with experience of the practices of the exciting and ever-changing world of publishing. Designed to offer a challenging and enjoyable intellectual and creative experience, it also provides a foundation for a host of different careers, fostering and developing many of the skills necessary for the modern workplace, particularly with its concentration on seminar discussion, workshops and project work.
