Students of English Literature at Edge Hill University have the chance to be inspired by a wide range of literature, from classic to contemporary.
After the first year foundation modules, in which you have a grounding in the history of literature, approaches to criticism, and the contemporary literary scene, the degree programme offers modules in all aspects of English literature.
Survey modules based on historical periods such as the Renaissance or the Victorian age, are complemented by more specialised options focusing on particular themes and genres – for example, the short story, vampire fictions, or modern British drama.
Our highly qualified, enthusiastic and research-active staff also teach at postgraduate level, offering an MA in English and supervised PhD research. It is also possible to study significant English Literature content on MA History and Culture and MA Popular Culture.
