    The first year examines the genres of drama, the novel and poetry as well as creative and practical writing and literature on screen.

    Second year modules introduce students to literature from the medieval period to the present day, while offering students the opportunity to pursue study in areas ranging from Medieval Romance to Writing in the 21st Century.

    In the third year, a wider range of specialist modules are available, such as Studies in Literature and Film, Contemporary Poetry and 20th Century Autobiography and English in the Workplace. Students in recent years have completed dissertation projects on topics ranging from William Blake and popular music to literary representations of the Holocaust. We have an open door academic guidance centre available for students across all years.
