      In Depth

      What will I study?

      In Year 1 you will study literature from across 3,000 years of literary history, from ancient Greek mythologies to Victorian novels and modern comic books. You will build your skills and confidence in analysing poetry, prose and drama, and develop methodological, critical and theoretical approaches to reading literature. You will be introduced to stories, myths and narratives as they exist both in literature and in other kinds of texts such as films, games and graphic novels. Literature modules allow you to study both classic works and popular writing, while also immersing you in the history of literature. In addition, we will concentrate on training you in the research skills and scholarly practices that you will require to succeed at degree level.

      In Years 2 and 3 of your course you will study specific literary periods – the Renaissance, Romanticism, Victorian literature, and Modernism – but you will also be able to choose from special topic and special author modules which draw on staff research expertise and allow you to pursue the kinds of literature that interests you most. Further specialism is possible in research projects and dissertations and you will also have the opportunity to work independently on employability projects supporting your future career development.

      How will I study?

      Teaching and learning includes lectures and seminars, workshops, group activities, independent research and our online Virtual Learning Environment (VLE). As well as module and seminar tutors, we offer both personal tutors and year tutors who support you through your studies. The work undertaken on research projects underpins teaching throughout the department and ensures you are at the forefront of developments in your subject.

      How will I be assessed?

      Emphasis is 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.

      Who will be teaching me?

      We have a dedicated and enthusiastic team of English Literature tutors who also contribute to Masters programmes and the supervision of research students. Our staff are active in research in all taught subject areas, publishing books and articles on a regular basis. Several have been successful in winning national research awards from bodies such as the British Academy. The work undertaken on research projects underpins teaching throughout the department and ensures you are at the vanguard of developments in your subject.

      A Great Study Environment

      The building includes lecture theatres, seminar and tutorial rooms, which are ideal for group discussions and one-to-one tuition, as well as IT resources and social learning spaces.
