Comments about BA English Language & Literature - At the institution - London - Greater London

  • Objectives
    English is the world's primary language of international communication and an English department has, therefore, a special responsibility not only to provide skills in the use of the English language at the analytical level but also to develop the process of thinking itself through a critical examination of its literatures. The Department of English prides itself not only on the range and diversity of the modules it offers, from medieval literature to modern poetry and women's writing, but also on the diversity of the approaches it employs, from contemporary literary theory to close textual examination and historical scholarship. We aim to offer the best of teaching on the classic English texts together with unprejudiced, open and imaginative approaches to newer and less familiar developments in the discipline.
