Oxford Brookes University has opted into the TEF and received a Silver award.
English Literature offers the opportunity to study an exciting range of modules, blending the study of classic texts and literary traditions with current theoretical models for understanding literature as a dynamic, global phenomenon. Our course is renowned for its inspirational teaching and research excellence. In the 2013 National Student Survey (Source: Unistats), 93 per cent of students agreed that staff had made the subject interesting.
In Year 1 you will study modules which foster the development of core skills for your degree. You may also take some modules outside the subject – and even learn a new language. Modules include Culture, Criticism and Literature, World Literature, Critical Theory, and Shakespeare. In Year 2 you will choose between core modules which broaden the knowledge and skills gained in Year 1. These include American Literature and Culture, The Literature of Space, The Novel and Modernity, and Culture, Crime and Transgression. You will also study a range of additional, optional modules allowing you to specialise in the areas of literary study that most interest you. Final year specialist optional modules offer intensive, small-group teaching in a particular area of literary study. These are designed to build on the work you have done in Year 2. In addition, you will choose either the Contemporary Literature (Synoptic) module or the Dissertation Module, working one-to-one with a specialist lecturer.
